Branch Secretary Update…

Lone working

Last year we were involved in several collective grievances from around the Trust over enforced lone working.

Although this year there’s been more focus on reducing backup delays and increasing DSAs, which has helped, we still have an unsupportive policy around lone working.

I’ve undertaken some work on this, and have been speaking to Anthony Marsh directly over the need to support the staff that signed these grievances, as well as the hundreds of student Paramedics starting work on the frontline.

Part of my research into lone worker policies in Ambulance sector has included looking at the WMAS policy, which states:

‘A&E staff that do not normally work alone have the right to decline to do so.’  

I’ll update you over discussions, and if you have any concerns in the meantime please get in touch.

The 13th October was the first national strike within the NHS for 30+ years, and it’s not something that any of us want when we are all here to make a difference to patients that call and need our services! 

Considering the atrocious weather on Monday there was a fantastic turnout, with multiple picket lines manned by a wide range of staff across the region, supported by our very dedicated reps. The Branch Convenor and Secretary – Barry & Fraer provided mobile support and encouragement. This allowed staff to voice and show their disappointment and disagreement with how the government has once again turned their back on the NHS and its workers.
