Progress to Date

  • Other staff groups have commenced matching – Nurses, scientists, A&C, senior managers


Consistency checking
Consistency Checking

  • The outcomes should be checked for consistency against the following;

  • Other Matches completed by the same and other matching panels over an agreed period

  • Other local matches within the same occupational group and job family

  • Other local matches within the same pay band

  • National profiles for the same occupational group and pay band

  • “Common Sense” check


Consistency checking1
Consistency Checking

  • Any apparent inconsistencies in matching should be referred back to the matching panel. The panel should review the match in question and answer any queries or make amendments as appropriate

  • Only when consistency checking is complete and any apparent inconsistencies resolved should the matching form be issued to jobholders......


Review process
Review Process

  • If unhappy about the result, individuals or groups of staff can request a rematch with a different panel

  • Request has to be made within 3 months of the notification of the outcome

  • Fill in matching review form

  • No further right of appeal beyond second panel if complaint is about matching outcome

  • If process was flawed, then a local grievance can be initiated


Issues
Issues

  • Inconsistency within laboratories

  • Inconsistency between HPA laboratories

  • Inconsistency between HPA laboratories and other local employers

  • Perception that clustering is bad for you

  • Lack of transparency in the consistency process

  • a. limited feedback to practitioners

  • b. failure to release original panel paperwork to individuals

  • c. evidence that consistency has been applied


Issues1
Issues

  • 6. Inconsistency in advice between (or within) unions

  • 7. Lack of informed debate about Factor 2 (KTE) levels 7 and 8b

  • 8. Composition of panels

  • a. lack of “expert” member

  • b. 3-person panels now the routine

  • 9. Review process not to start until matching exercise is complete (could be 6-9 months)

  • 10. New national profiles being released in middle of process
