NHS Staff Council overtime guidance

Staff Council logo

The NHS Staff Council has published guidance to support conversations on the introduction of local temporary changes to overtime payments made to staff during the COVID-19 emergency and its aftermath. 

The guidance document sets out a framework of the temporary measures that can be introduced, subject to local agreement. The provisions within the document are not intended to replace any existing arrangements that may have already been jointly agreed at local level.

The guidance document covers the following areas:

  • temporary increases in hours in excess of 37.5 hours per week (bands 1-7)
  • band 8 and 9
  • time off in lieu (TOIL)
  • proposed duration of temporary measures
  • funding
  • annual leave and health and wellbeing
