News and blog posts from Bluestones Medical Nursing
Welcome to our news centre. Here you can keep up to date with everything the team at Bluestones Medical have been up to, key developments in the sector and announcements about upcoming work, legislative changes and other interesting snippets.
This month we will aim to provide useful information on the following subjects:
In a complete backtrack by NHS Improvement, they’ve published the following announcement:
Following feedback from nurses about our latest agency rules on substantive staff, we’ve clarified our rules. Until further notice, we’re pausing our instruction that providers should ensure staff employed through an agency are not substantively employed elsewhere in the NHS.
This new rule will not start from 1 April 2017 and providers normal processes can remain in place.”
Having just dusted myself off from the recent IR35 developments I cant say that I was ready to be informed about NHSi’s recent guidelines. We currently represent over 2,000 RGNs, RMNs, ODPs and HCAs and I genuinely feel that recently, all we furnish them with is bad news and more restrictions on how they live their lives.
