The aim of this policy is to enable the Trust to recognise performance and for robust processes to be in place that enable this to happen in a fair and equitable way.
The amendments to Agenda for Change (AfC), introduced in 2013, have been agreed by trade unions and staff representatives at National level. These groups actively support, encourage and promote a partnership approach to the development of the pay system. The aim is to ensure the pay system supports NHS service modernisation and meets the reasonable aspirations of staff.
NHS Trusts and trade unions are expected to work in partnership to agree and implement the changes at a local level. This Policy demonstrates the partnership approach we have with our Trade Unions and has been developed through partnership working with our Staff Side colleagues.
