The SoR received a formal offer from the Department of Health and NHS Employers this afternoon (16 March).
The offer comprises three elements. These are:
The SoR is reviewing the offer carefully and will advise further when we have had a chance to reasonably do so.
The SoR has agreed to consult members about the offer. We had already scheduled a series of briefings for members and Reps and these will continue with more detail around the offer. Feedback from these discussions will help inform consultation with the UK Council. UK Council will then consider what recommendation, if any, the SoR will make around the offer, with formal consultation expected through April.
Members in Wales are subject to separate on-going negotiations and will be subject to separate consultations. Members in Scotland are already being consulted on a separate offer.
Members in Northern Ireland will also be consulted separately following this offer, which does not apply to them as things stand.
