FAIR WORK FOR FAIR PAY

Despite the large number of roles and responsibilities pharmacy support workers undertake to ensure your prescriptions and ward medicines are dispensed and delivered to you safely, we are among the lowest paid nhs workers in Tayside. 

ROLE DEVELOPMENT

Our role has developed significantly since agenda for change took place. Filtering duties from higher paid jobs into lower pay grades has happened steadily over the years that our role is now unrecognisable compared to 15 years ago. NHS Tayside refuse to acknowledge these additional duties and responsibilities, and maintains we be graded at the same banding we were all those years ago. 

Our banding dispute has been ongoing for over a decade. We have been banded at a band 3 on two occasions and once at almost a band 4. We were then accused of lying about our duties and our managers accused of fraudulent behaviour.

 

NHS TAYSIDE PROCESSES FAILED

Nhs Tayside have admitted that their process was flawed when reviewing our case and attempted steps to solve this issue, unfortunately, nothing has come of this. All we ask is to be paid a fair wage and for NHS Tayside to acknowledge the duties we undertake on a daily basis. 

PLEASE SUPPORT YOUR SUPPORT WORKERS!!

Your support would be immensely appreciated! We will not stop until NHS Tayside correctly evaluate our job and acknowledge the duties we carry out and the qualifications we have gained in order to undertake these duties as part of our roles and responsibilities. ✊✊
