Update – IX and meal break pilot

The IX and meal break pilot, jointly agreed between the Trust and UNISON, has now been running for one month.  

So far, 197 crews have been placed into intelligent X-ray as a result of the pilot, and initial feedback from staff and those on the staff support desk is that the pilot measures are having a positive impact.
