The problem with the agenda for change is that it catered mainly for "clinical staff", our trade is barely in there. The other side of the coin is that a Foundation trust can pay you whatever it feels at the discretion of the board and chief exec.They can pay a support worker a band 8 should they feel that the support worker deserves it.
The private sector has its benefits i suppose, been there already but was made redundant so there are risks i suppose.
I am actually thinking about a whole new start altogether, different trade, away from hospitals altogether.
I am indeed proud to work for the NHS, sadly the NHS is not proud of me and my profession. Lack of good leadership i suppose.
