Newly Qualified Paramedic Role and National Pay Banding Agreement

Katherine Nash made this Rhyddid Gwybodaeth request to West Midlands Ambulance Service University NHS Foundation Trust

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

We're waiting for Katherine Nash to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust

I would be most obliged if you could respond to the following under the terms of the FOI Act.

1) Has the Trust devised a job description for the Newly Qualified Paramedic role? If so, please provide as an attachment.

2) Has the Trust proposed any restrictions on practise or additional support for Newly Qualified Paramedics in their first 2 years post registration, and if so, please confirm the nature of these in full. (e.g. limited rights to discharge patients on scene without clinical advice, restrictions on administering certain drugs, support to ensure they do not work alone or with new trainees, support to ensure they work with only experienced staff)

3) Has the Trust evaluated it's existing Band 5 Paramedic role and performed a job matching exercise to confirm that existing Paramedics with over 2 years experience, will progress onto Band 6 as advised by the Department of Health? If not, please clarify what impact, if any, the new agreement will have on Trust staff.

4) By what date will the Trust fully implement the new National Pay Banding Agreement?

5) The Trust has discretion to alter the 2 year period as a Newly Qualified Paramedic, which is termed 'up to' 24 months. Has the Trust agreed a set of criteria for when discretion will be exercised (e.g. for those previously acting as EMTs before qualification) or will this be decided on a case by case basis? If there is agreed criteria, please confirm the nature of this.

6) Please confirm whether the Trust has met or plans to meet, with local Union representatives to agree the terms of local implementation for the new National Agreement? Please provides dates of these discussions and the current outcome of talks.

I look forward to your timely response.

Yours faithfully,

Katherine Nash
