Agency staff

I used to work for a firm of contract caterers who found they were spending excessive amounts of money on agency staff. The company set up their own agency, the staff were paid the same but as there was no agency fees above the basic running costs it saved the company a great deal of money as in the late 1990's agency costs were double what the staff were paid.

I think the health service should set up their own agency.

Why the contribution is important

The health service say they spend a considerable amount of money on agency staff for the hospital.

    I suggest Agency rates are no more than, and possibly less than permanent staff.
    After all those who are the agency staff are working to their convenience and may well have other sources of income/pension/benefit!
