Responses are sought on ideas including whether the current complex mileage rates should be simplified into a single mileage rate or a single rate with a lump sum. Views are also sought on whether to have a ‘public transport rate’.

The Mileage Allowance Working Group, which includes employers and unions including the RCN, concludes its consultation at the end of April.

Further discussions will have to take place through the NHS Staff Council at the end of the consultation before any final agreement is made.
