People were all clapping again for the NHS, but do staff have a heart of gold or just cashing in?

Quote:
All NHS staff in pay bands 1–7 are eligible for overtime payments if they work more than 37.5 hours a week. ... You can request time off in lieu instead of overtime.

+ 20% if you work in inner London (subject to a minimum payment of £4,076 & a maximum payment of £6,279)

+ 15% if you work in outer London
(subject to a minimum payment of £3,448 & a maximum payment of £4,395)

+ 5% if you work in the fringe zone (subject to a minimum payment of £942 & a maximum payment of £1,632)


https://www.rcn.org.uk/employment-and-p ... employment


The average NHS salary ranges from approximately £19,923 per year for nurse to £53,748 per year for nurse consultant. Average NHS hourly pay ranges from approximately £7.65 per hour for nurse to £38.81 per hour for registered nurse - ICU

https://www.indeed.co.uk/cmp/Nhs/salari ... y=mednurse

So a nurse who's worked over her 37.5 hours per week will get 1.5 overtime rate for any over time. That means a registered nurse whose base is £38.81 for the first 37.5 hours will be paid £58.21 for overtime.

I think we all saw this last week.



Quote:
This NHS critical care nurse was left in tears after finding no fruit or vegetable in her supermarket after a 48-hour shift.


Lets say her base was £1455.37 for the first 37.5 hours and she did 11 hours overtime... that's another £640.31 making a grand total of £2095.68 or around 8k per month.

Doctors get even more.

But want about the others I hear you cry?

NHS Nurse yearly salaries in the United Kingdom is £27,439 per year. Thats around £14 an hour or £528 per week. The overtime rate is £21 per hour. With 10 hours over time that's about £740 per week.

To give you a little perspective....classroom teachers ranges from £24,373 to £30,480 depending on location. Up to £121,749 for headteachers in inner London.

https://www.tes.com/jobs/careers-advice ... pay-scales

Electricians and plumbers average salary is £32,500 per year for a 44 hour week. No extra for overtime too.

Covid 19 must be a real windfall for NHS staff. Most of them will take home double pay during this pandemic. Those who have been screaming for more testing for NHS staff due to self isolating leading to low staffing levels in hospitals might be right.

Or those NHS suck at home due "self isolating" feel like there missing out on a pay day.

And before you all start moaning I'm just being negative at a time of national crisis and the NHS staff deserve every penny.....maybe you're right.

On the other hand... no one goes to work cause they like it and most people do the bare minimum once there.

This includes NHS staff.

What makes a doctor or nurse do what they do in times like this. Would you?
Would you walk in to a 12.5 hour shift in a ward stuffed full of Corona sufferers, without proper protective clothing?
Would you?

Firefighters get the same deal. They take more risks than medical staff too.

See:

https://www.fbu.org.uk/pay-rates/pay-settlement-2019


After years of public service strikes and industrial action, you can't say any of them are low paid. They have pay packages that for most in private sector ended with Thacher.

How much of the extra £5 billion for the NHS to Combat COVID-19 is going on staff overtime?

At least firefighters have the proper gear to wear, unlike the poor medics.
And as to overtime, Don't you think they deserve it? [1744330pz84739fis.gif]

Not many get what they deserve. Life's not fair. The poor don't deserve to be hungry and the sick don't deserve to die. In Jesus day, a few people rose from the dead and were healed at deaths door. Those were the days!

After doing a fair be of research, the real unsung heroes are our armed services.

During the flooding they were building flood defences. Right now they're involved with constructing Nightingale hospitals and delivering supplies. Trained medical staff from all services are helping out in NHS hospitals too.

Unlike the NHS staff, they don't get overtime and forced away from home to cover gaps in the system. And they take the same risks each day.

While supermarket staff and delivery drivers rack up the hours too, our military received nothing more than there normal pay packet for longer working hours.

The military are only ones not cashing in on this pandemic. Instead of clapping for the NHS, why not just say thank you to our armed services?

They are working really hard and seem to be forgotten.

Why not say thank you to everyone including the NHS. Oh and NHS staff can meet disease every day firemen don't necessarily face fires every day

The NHS and other public services are 40 hour per week jobs.

The army can work you 24 hours per day, 7 days per week and not pay you anymore. In recent months the army have been call in time and time again working long hours with no public thanks.

Unfortunately our media would rather highlight nurses braving carrying on than an army medic working a 70 hour week.
