On November 20th the Government (namely Monitor and the Trust Development Authority) issued rules in relation to price caps for agency staff.
We as an agency were very active during the 4 week consultation period regarding these rules and drafted a strong response to the proposals.
Out of those who responded 88% of doctors, 88% of nurses, 82% of other clinical staff (including radiographers), 55% of non-clinical staff, and 65% of agencies disagreed with the introduction of price caps. The majority of NHS Trusts who responded (92%) supported the introduction of the caps in principle.

These price caps dictate the maximum a NHS Trust in England can pay per hour for an agency worker based on their banding.
These price caps will be staggered. The first price cap started on Monday November 23rd and will run until January 31st 2016. The second stage will start from February 1st 2016. The final cap will come into force on April 1st 2016.
