Caring for patients over the summer

 Executive Bulletin

Enhanced overtime rates over the summer period

The August period routinely presents challenges with balancing demand in our region against staffing levels.
Our forecasting and planning tells us that we need to increase the level of capacity and support to meet demand.  To support this need, we will be offering additional payments for overtime shifts on various dates between Friday 9th August and Monday 2nd September. 

In order to ensure that our staffing levels are balanced, there are a fixed number of shifts available to be incentivised. 

The payments are available to:

  • Any staff working overtime on an emergency double staffed ambulance
  • PTS staff providing dedicated urgent vehicle support for A&E
  • Staff working in Call handler, Dispatch, ECAT and ToC roles
  • For staff working pre-existing shifts of at least 8 hours or more

Eligibility and further information:

  • Only the shifts specified on the table below would attract the additional payments
  • Overtime will be paid at the applicable AFC rate
  • All part time, full time and bank staff are eligible for the additional payments
  • No cancellation of any pre-booked overtime between 05.08.19 and the 02.09.19
  • No sickness absence between 5th August and 10th September 2019
  • No other absences other than pre-booked annual leave (unless authorised by a senior manager)
  • Claims must be submitted in the August and September pay submissions

Please contact your locality planner to book shifts or speak to your line manager for any further information.

Sincere thanks to all of you for keeping our patients safe.
