Community Network: Letter to health and social care secretary on pay award for NHS staff on local authority contracts

The Community Network, which is jointly hosted by NHS Providers and NHS Confederation, has written to health and social care secretary Steve Barclay on behalf of leaders of NHS community health services regarding pay awards announced by government for NHS staff.

In particular, the network is seeking clarity about the funding arrangements for NHS staff, on NHS terms and conditions, who are working in services which are commissioned by local authorities rather than NHS England.
