AGENDA FOR CHANGE
Amicus MSF identify Agenda for Change as the most effective way of correcting many of the anomalies in the present pay and grading structures. It also provides objectively determined flexibility to reflect the Skills Escalator and Skill Mix. The Job Evaluation scheme provides an objective way of determining pay and minimises pay inequalities. Amicus MSF has a number of concerns, which will have to be resolved before the arrangements could be acceptable to our 65,000 professional and skilled members in the NHS.
