We the undersigned ask that PHNT Derriford Hospital reverses its plans to join the South West pay cartel. £10k of public money wasted to create another talking shop! It also undermines ongoing national negotiations.
Whilst Directors award themselves £1.47 million PHNT Trust Plymouth propose to cut NHS Employees pay by up to 15%
Derriford Hospital and 18 other South West NHS Trusts intend to join a consortium, dubbed the “South West Pay Cartel”, which aims to suppress wages and deminish staff Terms and Conditions. With morale in the Trust already at an all-time low, we would encourage the Trust Board to concentrate on restoring some stability to the organisation and focus on getting a permanent leadership team in place, rather than exploring ways to potentially attack and undermine our members’ Terms and Conditions. PHNT claims to be an ambitious and forward thinking organisation, looking to develop its portfolio of services and attract the best talent from around the country.
