Royal wedding day NHS work row

16th February 2011

Health workers in some parts of the country have been told they will not receive extra pay for working on the royal wedding day, which has been declared a bank holiday.

Unison said health staff would normally get time plus 60% and a day in lieu for bank holiday working and some hospitals are paying extra to staff on duty on 29 April. But other units, including hospitals in Norfolk, Solihull, Birmingham, and Lancashire, want to treat it as a normal working day. The Department of Health is allowing each hospital to decide its own arrangements.
