Section 2

Transparent EEAST crest

The NHS Staff Council reached agreement on a refresh of NHS Terms and Conditions of Service (Agenda for Change).

There will now be a three year pay deal, as well as reform of the pay structure and changes to terms and conditions. The NHS Terms and Conditions of Service Handbook was republished on 1st July 2018 and this reflects the changes agreed.

For Ambulance Staff, the most significant change is to unsocial hours enhancements. The changes seek to ensure that Ambulance Staff are consistent with other NHS Staff Groups who are currently paid under section 2 arrangements. 

The documents on East24 include Principles relating to Section 2, a voluntary move request form, along with National and local FAQs. For anyone wishing to estimate pay under both systems, there is a comparison tool on NHS employers website.
