Recruitment and Retention Premium

We are committed to providing the best working environment for our staff, and we’re investing in our frontline nursing staff by offering an attractive Recruitment and Retention Premium. Our registered and unregistered nursing staff within General and Old Age Medicine, Stroke, and Neurology will now receive an additional 7% payment in every pay packet, worth up to £203 each month.

The purpose of the RRP is to assist with the recruitment and retention of nursing staff within the areas that are nationally challenging.  By attracting and retaining our staff, we can continue to improve the quality of patient care and further develop and support our staff.  The value of the RRP is 7% of an individual’s basic salary, and is paid to all eligible individuals on a monthly basis with their normal salary payments.  The RRP is not included in the calculation for enhancements and is non-pensionable.

The eligible wards are:

Cheltenham General Hospital, General and Old Age Medicine: Woodmancote Ward and Ryeworth Ward.
            Find out more about these wards and our vacancies here.

Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, General and Old Age Medicine: Gallery Wing Ward 1, Ward 4A, Ward 4B, and Ward 9B.
