We are campaigning for equality and safety for ALL NHS staff
We are a group of NHS staff who want to let all our NHS colleagues – whatever their role, employer, or contract – that NHS England’s policy (see below) is that they have a right to expect full pay to self isolate.
We encourage you to do three things:
- Join a union (and tell your rep if you need to self-isolate)
- Put up posters advertising the NHS England policy for full self-isolation pay for all staff
- Sign and circulate our letter to NHS England and the Government
We started our campaign at the East London Foundation Trust but we are reaching out nationwide.
In a letter dated 2 March 2020 NHS England told the bosses of all NHS Trusts that they should
“Ensure that any member of staff, including bank staff and sub-contractors, who has to be physically present at an NHS facility to carry out their duties, receives full pay for any period in which they are required to self-isolate as a result of public health advice.” (page 3)
