Hello and Happy New Year!
I am a staff nurse working in recovery/PACU in Southampton. We do shifts at weekends under the Waiting List Initiative (WLI) and the pay is currently under review. If anyone of you also do these either in theatres or on the surgical wards, could you possibly post how much you get and the conditions.
This is what we are paid currently:
£100 per 3.5 hour session. A shift can vary from 1 to 3 sessions. If we work 1 hour into a session we get paid for the entire session. Ie. 4.5 hour shift (not including breaks) = 2 sessions. HCAs get £65 per session and I hear that anaesthetists are paid £900.
Any replies would be very much appreciated.
