Get Sunday rates for working extra weekdays  

As a result of the pressures we are currently facing in keeping beds and theatres open, Oxford University Hospital is announcing a short-term financial incentive scheme to support bank workers within the nursing and midwifery staff group and encourage them to take on some additional shifts where safe to do so.

How does it work?

Each bank member can book any extra week day (Monday to Friday), day shift that they are not already committed to.  For shifts booked between Monday 20 August and Friday 14 September they will be paid the Sunday pay rate.   


Terms and Conditions

  • Nurses will continue to be paid weekly for the work completed at the standard day rate and at the end of the four-week period, the additional sum will be calculated and paid as a lump sum on 28 September 2018
  • All shifts need to be booked via the NHS Professionals booking platform. Timesheets will need to be authorised by the hiring manger and released by the individual by the Wednesday of the following worked week
  • The scheme applies to all workers who have nursing and midwifery staff group assignment codes on their profiles
  • The lump sum payment will be subject to tax
