We'll know for definite what she earned when she gets her 20/21 PC60 but she takes home roughly £500 per month less than me and I'm on £41K!
I don't know for sure,but I will ask,but I'm quite sure her Matron doesn't earn £40K!
I would suggest she has been placed on a Trust contact and not an Agenda for Change one.
She can be a sister, on a trust contract and earn £33k or a Band 7 and earn £41k. What she cannot be is a B7 sister earning £33k.
If she’s on a trust contact as a Sister then that is ridiculous.
AFAIK she was on a Trust contract from 1997-2016 when she was promoted to Sister/B6.To accept the position of Sister/B6 she had to change to the AFC contract so it meant a pay cut.When she moved up to Senior Sister/Ward manager/B7 she had a slight increase from Sister/B6 but as I stated earlier nowhere near £41K.
Under her old 1997 contract she might have been paid nearer the £40K mark but under the new AFG she's worse off.One of her friends she trained with is still a Band 5 in Leeds and she earns almost the same as my wife!
I have just had a thought.
My wife went into nursing the old way,full-time on the job training with a Bursary.She is currently studying for a Degree at home as this was also one of the requirements under the new contract.She got the job due to hard work and 20+ years experience so the Degree was allowed to be retrospective.
Maybe this explains the discrepancy?I will ask her when she gets home.I fear I might have jumped the gun a bit here.....
AfC brought about benefits to the vast majority of staff when it was implemented. Unfortunately it got eroded by many years of a pay freeze but anyone on a B7 AfC contract gets paid in line with national agreements. The details are readily available in the public domain.
