Many nurses will not be paid extra for working the Queen's Diamond Jubilee bank holiday, a survey suggests.
Nursing Standard contacted more than 60 NHS employers in England for the straw poll. Over half of the 24 trusts that responded will not pay staff the enhanced bank holiday rate on June 5, but will offer staff a day off in lieu instead.
Of the remainder, only Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust, of which the Queen is a patron, and the Colchester Hospital University NHS Foundation Trust confirmed they will pay staff the enhanced bank holiday rate set out in Agenda for Change (AfC). Nine trusts were still undecided.
