NHS Staff Council

Meeting room

The national NHS Staff Council has overall responsibility for the Agenda for Change pay system and has representatives from both employers and trade unions.

Its remit includes:

Joint referrals

Where local partnerships are unable to agree an interpretation of the NHS terms and conditions of service, parties are able to submit a joint referral to the NHS Staff Council seeking clarity. These can be made to the joint NHS Staff Council secretaries via the NHS Staff Council secretariat. Referrals must be made in partnership (employer and trade union) in order for the NHS Staff Council to be able to give a view.

All referrals should be sent to EmploymentRelationsSupport@nhsemployers.org which is managed by the Staff Council Secretariat support.
