Update - Transfer panel for Public Health Nurses

Date: 31 March 2015    
To:  PHNs, Assistant Directors and Directors of Public Health Nursing and Student Public Health Nurses
From:  Phil Ni Sheaghdha, Director of Industrial Relations

Dear Colleagues

Further to our recent meetings and ballot on the proposals for a transfer panel for public health nursing, I advise as follows:

1.  The outcome of the PHN ballot is that 99% voted in favour of the proposals for the transfer panel as set out. We have notified management of the result and they will now in the next week, notify all eligible PHNs of the application process. The commencement date, 1st April 2015 for the launch of the PHN transfer panel is still intact, however, the formal notification of the opening of the transfer panel will be notified at a later date, as the mechanisms are not in place at the HSE as yet. We will be notified of the opening date and will advise members of same via our website.

2.  The INMO have notified management that there are matters arising from the implementation of the circular to recruit and train public health nurses, commencing in September 2015, particularly the interface with current students and the transfer panel.

3.  We have sought a confirmation that Directors of Public Health nursing are fully briefed in respect of all aspects of the transfer panel, the new circular and how the scheduling of clinical places are reconciled with the current group who are training, the group to be recruited and those awaiting transfer.

An information meeting with the Directors of Public Health Nursing has been agreed and will take place, jointly between the HSE and the INMO on Thursday 2nd April 2015, setting out the conditions attaching to the new circular of training for public health nurses, the transfer panel and possible outcomes of discussions relating to the current group which are to commence in May.

Any developments in respect of these matters will be notified to you following on from this meeting. Thank you for your attention to this note.

Re:Transfer panel for Public Health Nurses

Dear Colleagues,

As you are aware and as previously notified to you we are currently in the process of negotiating proposals on a transfer panel for Public Health Nurses.

Matters outstanding from the LRC agreement of 2014 relating to assimilation on to this panel are also the subject of these discussions.  We anticipate that these negotiations will be concluded on 9th March 2015.

A final meeting has been arranged for 9th March 2015 at which time proposals will then be ready for consideration by INMO members.

The following meetings have been arranged for PHN Grades (including PHNs who qualified in 2014 and student PHNs currently in college) to brief INMO members on the issues and to ballot members in respect of the proposals:
