Clin scientist is a long scale. From very low to very high.


My spelling is not bad. I am typing this on a Medigenic keyboard and I blame that for all my typos.

I am watching this with interest Jo, i am currently re writing my JD.
Its very difficult because there are other folk in the Trust with the same job title as me, but because we work in different depts, our JD's are very different.

Any one any suggestions about how to get over this? I dont think that it will wash with the panel personally.

Bandings here are as follows:

Medical Equipment Library (MEL) 2x staff on B5. (When these staff are replaced, they will be graded B2.)
Clinical Resource Centre (new bed / pressure relief decontam and repair facility) 3x staff on B2 and 1x Tech on B5.
Medical Device Trainers 1.5 staff on B7 both from Tech background. The other 0.5 staff was ITU nurse.(B7 for her training role).

Interesting. Topper what exactly are the duties of the band 2 personnel?


I love deadlines, I like the wooshing sound they make as they fly by.

As far as i believe, the B2's will be carrying out decontam, delivery/collection and assisting the B5 tech, maybe EST.
The current B5 MEL staff are not qualified techs which is why they would be replaced with 2's if they left.
Our library, which opened in 1998, has always been just that, the staff book general ward devices in/out, deliver and collect from wards, clean the equipment and c/o very basic maintenance i.e. changing plug fuses, EST, changing batteries etc. The PPM and repairs are traditionally the responsibility of our General EBME Section although i (ITU Tech) do their syringe drivers.

Now I'm really confused ... I had imagined Band 5 to be higher (that is, higher skilled, paid more etc.) than Band 2.

So who (what) are these Band 5 MEL's that you're talking about, if not "qualified techs"? smile

You have misinterpreted the sentence. There is no need for these "Librarians" to be qualified which is why the posts have been deemed to merit B2 in the "current cost saving climate".
The two current staff were ATO then SATO then pursued an upgrade to MTO2 then this translated to B5 in their eyes. They have been very lucky to get B5 without being "skilled" but still they moan.

No Topper, I didn't misinterpret what you said. The point I was trying to eek out was (to put it plainly):-

How come we are paying people at Band 5 for doing Band 2 work?

And, why aren't they being moved into a Band 5 job (or demoted to Band 2) today?

If they are not "qualified techs" ... what are they? Ex-nurses or some such thing? I don't understand terms like ATO, SATO. What's that? An Assistant Technical Officer, or something like that? A clerk, in other words (in plain English, that is).

It all sounds like a dog's breakfast to me. Yes, especially in the "current cost saving climate" (that is, when hundreds are losing salaried positions almost every day), I reckon it's about time all this AfC [censored] was sorted out, once and for all!

Meanwhile, I notice that people are still re-writing their Job Descriptions, supposedly in an attempt to gouge even more out of us tax-payers! frown
