    Hospital CEO and new car parking charges

    In the last couple of days these have been announced for the Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals NHS Foundation:

    a £30,000 per year pay rise to £170,000 for the CEO. Nurses and HCA have had a pay freeze since 2011 and have been awarded 1% this year.

    and car parking charge increases

    0-1 hours: £2.50 (currently 0 to 20 minutes is free)
    1-2 hours: £3.50 (currently 20 minutes to 2 hours is £1.90)
    2-4 hours: £4.50

    Also I think I heard all day charge to be £8.00

    As Victor Meldrew says "I don't believe it"
    McEnroe says "you cannot be serious"

    You couldn't make it up.

    Get everyone you know to write to your MP pointing out that affected users probably won't be voting for him/her next time round. That should produce some action.

    I think £170k for a CEO of a large organisation is cheap. Remember you get what you pay for.

    Also the Nursing staff get paid according to how much the government says and not by how much the CEO says, so it's a false argument.
    The shareholders and trustees of the hospital would have voted for his/her pay rise.

    Precisely, so the majority of employees are paid minimum wage, because they ??????

    Sorry Paul not making any argument just stating facts. There doesn't seem much fairness going on.

    the trouble is that when this coalition came in we were one told that there was no money left in the pot and then told we were in an economic recession but low and behold for the last 3 years these CEO people along with others have still seen their way to give themselves bigger and bigger pay rises while every one else has been stuffed up as they say.

    you can see how this greed continues between them as only the other week a CEO of a failing hospital only gave themselves yet another pay increase.

    with this greed situation going on then no wonder people are getting more and more annoyed.

    As for any fairness got to agree with firebird that this went out of the window a long time ago and has continued to go down further with the conservatives and their so called buddies.

    All depends on your contract of employment, an open contract which only says what you do what hours you do and where and when, may not state what pay rises you can have have. A close contract would be for staff like CEO directors who work for the NHS councils they would have a five year contract which stated how much you will have in wages rises and bonus payments they are legally exempted from any government interference.

    The fact is welfare benefits are to be stopped at 1% for the next three years to bring us in line with poverty levels in Africa.

    Do not forget the private sector are seeing wages rises of 3% upwards. with directors in some cases getting wage rises of 45% ...

    Buit the private sector had pay freezes, below inflation rises and in many cases pay cuts in the previoyus years whilst benefits were still increasing in line with inflation.

    Are the majority of employees nurses?
    Here is a table showing the band a nurse at a particular stage will get paid and the monetary value here according to the AfC (Agenda for Change) pay scales.
    Table - http://www.nhscareers.nhs.uk/explore...ay-for-nurses/
    Salary - http://www.nhscareers.nhs.uk/working...nge-pay-rates/

    A Hospital Nurse starts at Band 5 which gives a starting salary of £21388, that is not minimum wage. My wife earns less and manages a team of 10 in the local authority. The majority of nurses should be on bands 6-8a (my sister-in-law is a Matron and my auntie a Nurse Specialist) earning £25k-£47k.

    HCAs will be paid between Band 1-4 which is £14k-£22k which seems ok to me especially as they won't have had to do as much training as someone at a higher level.

    They may be on a pay freeze, but they should still be advancing up their respective bands each year depending on their own performance.
    Maybe the CEO had a performance related pay option in his contract and that is why he got something extra?

    Sorry Paul when I said employees it was a reference to employees in general and not specific to the health service. The CEO is in charge of a failing trust!

    The government has no say over the private sector at all, private firms can and have paid what ever they wish, and government would not be able to do anything about it, the public sector working class are the people who are being hammered since the government can control these wages. But government cannot dictate what I pay my people so long as I pay the min wage, or I can pay them as much as I wish.
