Speeding up the payment of your eTimesheets

Dear A24 Group Member

Unfortunately we’ve been experiencing a number of issues regarding electronic timesheet payments for bookings carried out at NHS Trusts that use eTimesheets.
Some NHS Trusts have elected to use this system as it allows them to closely control their agency usage and spend. Ward managers have been instructed to only “Authorise” bookings where they can clearly see the agency worker completed the assignment that they were booked for.  In most cases delays in payment are on the Trust’s side and result when ward managers do not have sufficient information to confirm your attendance and “Authorise” your timesheet for payment. Payroll and your bookings consultant will always work with you and the relevant ward manager/s to resolve these issues speedily BUT in most cases the delays can be avoided if you follow the guidance below.
 
Feedback from these Trusts highlights that there are four main issues that delay their authorisation of your shifts:

  • The Agency Worker did not sign the “Agency Book” on the ward to state their start time when they began their shift *** Please Note: Some wards also require you to sign out also.
  • The Agency Worker is asked to change wards, due to a changing need at the Trust, and they do not sign the “Agency Book” on the original ward to state where they were moved to.
  • The Agency Worker is asked to change wards and they do not sign the “Agency Book” on the new ward to state the start time and the ward they were moved from.
  • The Agency Worker works a shift that has not been added to the online booking portal on the wards.

Tips:

  • Once you arrive for your shift, it is your responsibility to sign the “agency book”. Always ask a member of staff to initial next to your name (this is normally done by the ward manager, ward sister or ward clerk to acknowledge that you have arrived for your shift).
  • Politely insist that they sign the book at the time because as you know wards can be busy places and they may forget causing delays in your pay.
  • Always note where you were asked to move to and from in the “agency book” books on both wards. This leaves a paper trail to help us get you paid quickly after the shift. This normally results in new booking reference numbers being generated of the Trust’s booking system as each ward is treated as a separate shift when it comes to payments.
  • When you have concluded your shift and ready to leave the ward politely ask the ward sister if they could “Authorise” your timesheet.
  • In the event that you arrive on a ward and they say the shift you were booked for has been cancelled (this is rare but can happen for a number of reasons) and they then offer to keep you on to work or move you to a different ward to work then it is important they create a new booking for you on the system that can be later “Authorised”. Please let your consultant know in this instance.

Note:

To allow us enough time to process payments for the Friday after the booking was carried out, for client s using the eTimesheets our payroll cut off for “Authorised” eTimesheets is Monday at 3pm. In the event the trust authorises your timesheet after this time the timesheet will be processed in the following week’s payroll run.

To ensure streamlining of payment we also urge candidates to inform us if they have been moved from one ward to another at the client. This way we can update our systems to reflect the correct booking for each candidate and timesheet.
 
By following the above guidance you will help us get you paid as quickly as possible. However, if you do experience issues with payments for bookings carried out at eTimesheet clients. Please call your consultant to see if the ward has “authorised” your shift.

Best Regards
A24 Group Payroll Team

 

Bank Holiday Deadlines – Easter and May 2015

Guidance for staff intending to travel to, or returning from, Ebola affected countries

Existing staff who have visited Ebola affected countries - this will mainly apply to those who have visited affected countries for the purpose of charity and/or healthcare work.The on-going outbreak of Ebola in West Africa, primarily affecting Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone has been declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern by the World Health Organization. This is the largest outbreak of this disease to ever happen. 

Ebola is a severe and life threatening viral disease caused by the Ebola virus. The onset of illness is sudden, with fever, headache, joint and muscle pain, sore throat and intense weakness. This is then followed by diarrhea, vomiting, rash, impaired kidney and liver function and stomach pain. Some patients may develop a rash, red eyes, hiccups, internal and external bleeding.

Ebola hemorrhagic fever is fatal in between 50 to 90% of all clinically ill cases. Ebola is spread through direct contact with blood and body fluids from infected people. The incubation period ranges from 2 to 21 days. Anyone who has close contact with a person infected with the virus, or someone who handles samples from patients are at risk. This includes hospital staff, family members and laboratory workers, all of whom are at risk if they do not use appropriate protective equipment / barrier nursing techniques. These precautions include wearing protective gowns, gloves, and masks, in addition to wearing eye protection (e.g. eye goggles) or a face shield.

The government advises against all but essential travel to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea except for those involved in the direct response to the Ebola outbreak. It remains unlikely but not impossible that travellers infected in one of the affected countries could arrive in the UK while incubating the disease and develop symptoms after their return. Although the likelihood of imported cases is very low, travellers returning to the UK from the affected areas, particularly those who have been involved in health care overseas, need to remain vigilant.

For staff who are planning to visit Ebola affected countries:

The agency requests that staff follow FCO advice and do not place themselves at risk of infection. The agency recognises that some staff may have family in one of the affected countries but it does not consider essential travel to include, for example, visiting family at Christmas. If staff choose not to follow the FCO advice and travel to one of the affected countries, this may then result in work restrictions and / or exclusion upon return as noted in the scenarios below.

All staff who travel to one of the Ebola affected countries (Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone) irrespective of the reason for travel (personal or work related) must contact the agency prior to leaving the UK and on return to the UK, prior to their return to work.

Existing staff who have visited Ebola affected countries - this will mainly apply to those who have visited affected countries for the purpose of charity and/or healthcare work.

If no healthcare work was undertaken whilst in one of the Ebola affected countries, and staff had no direct contact with a known or suspected Ebola, including attending a funeral, staff should:

  • Inform the agency prior to departure 
  • Monitor their health / temperature for 21 days from leaving the affected country
  • If the staff member becomes unwell with symptoms such as fever, chills, muscle aches, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sore throat or rash within 21 days of coming back from Guinea, Liberia or Sierra Leone, they should stay at home and immediately telephone 111 or 999 and explain that they have recently visited West Africa. These services will initiate the appropriate care pathway.
  • They must keep in touch with the agency prior to return to work.

If healthcare work was undertaken abroad or the staff member had direct contact with an Ebola case e.g. routine medical / nursing care but wore appropriate protective clothing with no known breaches in the personal protective equipment (PPE), the staff member should:

  • Inform the agency prior to departure
  • Check temperature twice daily for 21 days after return and report any raised temperature or other suspicious symptoms to the monitoring team at Public Health England (PHE).
  • Must provide Occupational Health with documentary evidence from their Voluntary Aid agency / affiliated health care institution who organised the overseas placement outlining the extent of their exposure and specific detail regarding the PPE used.
  • Contact the agency prior to return to work.
  • Staff member will be able to return to work after 21 days and monitoring completed.

If healthcare work was undertaken abroad or the staff member had direct contact with an Ebola case and may have had unprotected exposure of skin or mucous membranes to potentially infectious blood or body fluids, including on clothing or bedding, for example:

  • Unprotected handling of clinical/lab specimens
  • Mucosal exposure to splashes
  • Needlestick injury
  • Kissing and / or sexual contact

The staff member should:

  • Inform the agency prior to departure.
  • Check temperature twice daily for 21 days after return and REPORT DAILY to the monitoring Team at Public Health England (PHE) even if the temperature is normal and the staff member is not experiencing any suspicious symptoms.

Staff member will be able to return to work after 21 days and monitoring is completed.

Neonatal Specialist Nursing

Mayfair seeks qualified Neonatal nursing candidates to work in specialist neonatal units, within maternity and children's hospitals, and in the community -www.mayfair-nurses.com

Mayfair is in contact with major employers of neonatal nurses and provides agency nurses as a result of illness or holiday absence or continuing staff shortages. The agency is usually able to provide posts at short notice for short or longer periods of placement.

Candidates are advised to speak to Mayfair consultants on a regular basis and also to keep their on-line diaries up to date.

Neonatal nurses working with Mayfair care for new-born babies who are premature or born with an illness. There are a wide range of conditions that can affect new-born babies and require treatment from specialists within the multidisciplinary healthcare team.

Premature babies may have particular problems such as respiratory or other difficulties that may be life threatening if not treated promptly and appropriately by specialist teams. Additionally, the nutritional needs of sick and premature babies will require specialist support.

The neonatal nurse also has the important role of supporting the parent or parents of the baby at a time when they are probably very anxious and stressed. As far as possible, the parents and sometimes other family members are encouraged to take an active part in the care of the baby.

Qualifications
Mayfair registers qualified neonatal nurses for temporary assignments, who usually have a background as an adult or children’s nurse or midwife.

Neonatal nursing training programmes are usually delivered as CPD continuing professional development. They contain a range of modules, which specialise in different aspects of neonatal nursing.

Programmes are normally delivered in partnership with higher education institutions and also health care trusts. They may be available online, which offer the opportunity for distance learning.

Skills
As well as the general skills needed to be a nurse, candidate neonatal nurses require good interpersonal skills:- empathy: an understanding and relationship with the parents and other family members, a genuine interest in babies, understanding of the physiological and psychological needs of the new-born baby, the experience and competence to work in a highly technical area, the ability and willingness to work effectively in a multidisciplinary team.

Work opportunities
At Mayfair we continue to have positions available nationwide, due to the shortage of staff working as neonatal nurses. The agency has positions in all regions and areas: London, Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Glasgow, Birmingham, Bradford, Sheffield and Belfast.

Now CRB Renewal in just Nine Days on Mayfair Specialist Nurses Web

Agency nurses can now apply for CRB Criminal records Bureau checks on the internet with the Mayfair Specialist Nurses following the release of the latest application update of the agency’s web-based system, A24 Connect.

This new advance in CRB renewal will speed up dramatically the turnaround of Criminal Records checks, the agency says, to ensure that all its registered medical staff remain compliant and are able to work at all times. Mayfair Specialist Nurses, a division of the A24 Group, estimates that renewals will take from just nine days, where there are no previous convictions or cautions present on the applicant’s record.

The requirement by the NHS is that all agency workers must hold an enhanced CRB disclosure that is less than 12 months old. With current delays within the CRB system, says the agency, this has meant that some candidates currently have to re-apply four months before expiration.

Agency workers registered with Mayfair Specialist Nurses, can apply by logging onto A24connect, the unique web portal that enables medical staff to access work information and interact with the agency online 24 hours a day. Web visitors are prompted if their CRB certification is due for renewal and can then complete an on-line application form.

Agency staff simply log onto A24connect and follow the prompts to complete the online CRB application form. An electronic payment is then required for the CRB fee, currently £46.20. The agency countersigns the document once it is received and the application is automatically sent to the CRB. Candidates can log into A24 Connect to track progress at any time.

Mayfair Specialist Nurses, advises that with the introduction of the web-based service, applications on CRB printed forms cannot be accepted by the agency, and all submissions and payments must be on-line.

A24 Connect is an advanced web-based system that offers Agency nurses and HCAs an on-line work diary and range of advanced service features to help personnel to save time and ensure compliance. Candidates can update their availability for work, change bank information, download timesheets, view their compliance status, manage work history and references, and provide feedback.

Penny Streeter OBE is managing director of the A24 Group, which employs a dedicated development team of 18 software developers.

“This is a further stage in our constant investment in healthcare staffing technology and services – to ensure that we remain the leading agency group. We’re one of the largest users of the Criminal Records Bureau and process in excess of 900 enhanced disclosures every month and have worked with the bureau to develop our CRB online module.”
