Primary care trusts (PCTs) are employers in their own right and as such are responsible for the appropriate management of potential redundancies in their organisations. Employers who propose to make 20 or more employees redundant at one establishment over a period of 90 days or less have a statutory duty to consult relevant trade unions. The length of a redundancy notice is dependent on an individual's contractual notice period.
Work continues with national health service trade unions and staff to keep the need for compulsory redundancies to a minimum and avoid the loss of valuable and experienced staff from the NHS.
