star this property answer text <p>The Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill introduces a new Liberty Protection Safeguards model, which will replace the current Deprivation of Liberty Safeguards. The new model will be set out in a statutory Code of Practice, which will provide guidance to practitioners and individuals. This will include where a deprivation of liberty does and does not apply. The Government has committed to initially reviewing the Code within three years of the new system coming into force and then within five years of any previous review. These reviews will help inform whether the system is working as intended.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In June 2018 we agreed the Agenda for Change three year pay and contract reform deal which will see nearly one million National Health Service workers benefit over three years.</p><p>The deal gave all staff, including nurses in all pay bands, a pay rise of at least 3% for 2018/19. Over the course of the three years, nurses at the top of their pay band will receive a total pay increase of 6.5% and those below the top of their pay band, due to reforms to the pay structure (higher starting pay and fewer pay points), will see pay rises of between 9% and 29%.</p><p>The basic pay for a newly qualified nurse will rise from £22,128 to £24,907 over the three years.</p><p>In addition to basic pay, nurses are paid for working unsocial hours and an additional allowance if they work in and around London. The average earnings of a qualified nurse as at December 2018 was £32,280.</p><p>The deal was negotiated and agreed with the NHS trade unions and supported by the independent NHS Pay Review Body.</p>

The White Paper proposals include a new route for skilled workers which will be open to anyone at RQF level 3 (A-Level and equivalent) and above, irrespective of where they are applying from. This route will not be capped and employers will not be required to carry out a Resident Labour Market Test for higher skilled roles.</p><p><br>The White Paper also includes, as a transitional measure, a route for temporary workers which will be open to anyone from qualifying countries, at any skill level, for up to 12 months. We do not intend to impose a cap on the number of people wishing to use this route.</p><p><br>The White Paper is the start of a new national conversation and we have launched a year-long engagement programme over 2019 to take the views of a range of stakeholders across the UK, including the health and social care sector.
