Doc Title:

Bank Staff Payment for Work Undertaken


Circulation to Senior Management Team, for cascading to Management Teams and staff.

HR, Payroll staff and Bank Manager.

Document Reference Number:

CoS017 – May 2008


This document is to confirm the payments which are to be made to bank staff within NHS Fife where they hold a substantive and bank contract within NHS Fife. Managers at a local level must ensure that they process the correct payments for staff in the circumstances described.


The NHS Fife Project Team / Steering Group has agreed the arrangements which are to be applied for bank work undertaken by staff who hold both a substantive contract and bank contract within NHS Fife.


In the case of the Midwifery Bank as these staff have a linked 5/6 banding, that when required to cover a bank shift staff will receive payment based upon their substantive banding.

For all other nursing staff individuals must be paid the band of the shift being covered, even if they are working in their own area and have a higher banding within their substantive employment within NHS Fife.


It is the responsibility of the local manager to ensure that the payments being made to staff are in line with this guidance.
