Additional payment:

• From Monday day shift to Thursday night shift (inclusive) - £100 per shift
• From Friday day shift to Sunday night shift (inclusive) - £200 per shift
• Operational support extended daily hours by four hours - £50.

Payment eligibility
• All part time, full time and bank staff
• No absence*, except annual leave from 6th March - 12th March
• Overtime will be managed to ensure additional staffing is put out where and when needed.

*Individual cases will be reviewed by a senior manager in line with a pre-agreed exception criteria to cover matters
e.g. under the equality act/disability policy.

To claim the payment, use your normal timesheet, in line with the normal payroll cut off deadline to be authorised by the relevant senior manager for your area (to whom any queries should also be directed). Colleagues are reminded to ensure no breach of the working time directive when booking shifts.
