Allowances and Local Agreements

In general pay and working arrangements are defined by AfC or Medical terms and conditions. There are some local NHSBT specific agreements that define working arrangements and pay related to certain areas. The key agreements are listed below and have been agreed with our recognised trade unions (see the Trade Unions page for more information).
