Agenda for Change

Pay and conditions within the NHS are largely structured and transparent thanks to the Agenda for Change agreement. Most staff employed directly by NHS organisations in all four UK countries are employed on national Agenda for Change contracts.

AfC changes agreed

Health unions agreed with employers at the NHS Staff Council on 26 February to accept proposed changes to Agenda for Change in England.

This followed consultations by all unions with their respective members. CSP members working for the NHS and associated social enterprises in England backed the changes in a online ballot and this was confirmed by the Society's Industrial Relations Committee

The CSP is now working with other health unions, and hopefully employers, to issue guidance on implementation.

We are opposed to moves away from Agenda for Change and urge CSP members to oppose any attempts by employers to do so locally

Agenda for Change has been very successful for the vast majority of members.

Moves away from Agenda for Change will lead to a lose-lose downward spiral in pay, benefits, recruitment and retention, and training.
