Further thoughts on the reward of health care assistants.

Author information

  • 1Mersey RHA.


Discusses the need to view HDAs in a multiskilled generic context, irrespective of function (for reward purposes). Suggests three groups (direct care, indirect care and support). Mentions assimilation, then some NHS examples. Refers to a previous article in Health Manpower Management, Vol. 18 No. 1 and updates a Table therein. Mentions surveying the local labour market. Suggests a possible logical route, then an alternative scenario. Concludes that there is no one route to local variations, but there is a common need to separate NVQ-competence training, skill-mix and reward issues first--then link all together into one overall strategy comprising all component parts.
