The NHS Staff Council has issued a statement on the outcome of the negotiations around apprenticeship pay covering staff employed under the NHS terms and conditions of service (NHS TCS).
During 2018/19, the NHS Staff Council has been undertaking discussions with a view to reaching a collective national agreement to support local employers and trade unions in England in developing apprenticeship pay agreements.
It was not possible to reach agreement due to lack of consensus over what constituted an appropriate rate of pay for apprentices.
