Please see below a response to our letter to the Department of Health regarding what we believe should be included in the NHS Violence Strategy.
Roster Review - As you know the trust engaged a company (ORH) to carry out a demand analysis for PES to ensure the correct level of resource was available since the introduction of ARP.

AMBULANCE SERVICE WORKERS - RETIREMENT AGE CAMPAIGN
HAVE YOUR SAY - COMPLETE THE GMB SURVEY TODAY!
Legacy Paramedic Dispute - While it is now clear that a majority of the membership do not feel strongly enough to continue the fight to get justice for paramedics regarding their job evaluation. It is not something that this branch is willing to just forget and walk away from.
THANK YOU to all GMB members who took the time to complete our recent survey following on from last year’s pay campaign.
The message was loud and clear!
98% of GMB members thought that the pay award was too low.
We have received the independent scrutineer’s report following the ballot of GMB Paramedic members that closed 17th January 2019.
At our Branch Meeting in December the members gave us a mandate to continue with our action for the legacy Paramedics.
Paramedics are being stabbed, throttled, and sexually assaulted as shameful new figures show assaults on crew members have risen by one THIRD.
Paramedic Review. As you will now know the outcome of the recent JE was Band 5, no surprise there then
The other unions have written a joint response stating that they will now review their options. The GMB held a branch meeting on the day we found out the outcome and yes we were notified by way of the global email that was sent out to staff.
