Scotland’s Nurses are Going to Receive a Milage Rate Increase

Community nurses who work in Scotland are going to get an increase to their general milage rates. If you work in a nursing agency or if you are seeking care jobs in the carers industry then you will know what good news this is. It’s also going to benefit those who work in a nursing recruitment agency as well. The move comes from the Scottish regulatory body, the STAC. They are going to try and see NHS staff who tend to visit patients in the community and who also rely on their car for things like travel. They are going to get a rate increase of 5p per mile. The RCN have been trying to campaign for this for quite some time and they are trying to make sure that everyone gets the support that they need when it comes to doing their job. They are also going to help those who have an increase in fuel costs as well, and this is major to say the least. The college have said that this will be of some relief when you look at nursing staff who have been under a lot of financial strain and that they are also going to do what they can to give the right level of care to their patients too.

The STAC have come out to say that the NHS staff are going to get a temporary enhancement and this is going to go from around 56p to around 61p when they go from 3,500 miles or under. If they go above this then the rate is going to increase from 20p to 25p. The rates are of course, going to be applied to any travel that takes place from April 1st and that this is going to be reviewed on a month-by-month basis.
