Overtime deadline extended

We’d like to say a huge thank you to staff who have offered their availability for additional working over the peak weeks of winter to help support keeping our patients safe.

In order to maintain the high level of staffing over the entire Christmas period, we’re extending the incentive opening until 17th December. In particular, we’re looking for staff to work between:

31st December – 13th January

We have seen a tremendous uptake and this will see us putting out on average  40 additional ambulances per day more than last year.

As a reminder, the overtime (details can be found here) is available to all staff who provide support to the delivery of front line care through the emergency control rooms. This includes PTS staff who are offering time to support the activities of patient transport teams who are helping move patients that originate from an Health Care Professional and are assessed as appropriate. We now extend this further for PTS vehicles specifically focussed on discharge. This includes the whole incentive period.

For any questions, please speak to your line manager, who can escalate your query if needed.
