BVIHSA Increases Staff Pay

Medical staff employed to the BVI Health Services Authority (BVIHSA) have been awarded a salary increase.

The announcement was made by the Board of Directors of the BVIHSA) on April 28, 2017 after its ratification at a meeting on March 21, 2017.

The BVIHSA says the decision followed an independent comprehensive review and market analysis conducted by Compensation Resources International (CRI), which examined compensation arrangements for all employees.

Chief Executive Officer, Mrs. Paula Chester-Cumberbatch says “the Board recognizes that “as an essential service it is necessary for matters regarding health workers’ conditions of employment to be reviewed regularly, to ensure there is no negative impact on delivery of service to the community.

The CEO explains that together with enhanced compensation arrangements there must be an increased emphasis on performance accountability.
The new salaries were paid out on April 15th.

The new merit-based salary structure is being implemented for all categories of staff with a retroactive date of March 1, 2017. According to the BVIHSA, the review process is currently being finalized with respect to nursing personnel, and will then continue for allied health professionals, technical units, support units, and managerial staff.

The BVIHSA states that employees are required to comply with the BVIHSA Employee Handbook and Code of Conduct and to uphold high standards in matters such as working hours, professional ethics, caseloads and improved processes towards enhanced quality of care, with the strategic aim of achieving accreditation status.

The new salary structure by the BVIHSA follows a one day sickout by doctors and other medical personnel on February 20 of this year in protest of the disparities in pay, particularly between expats and locals.
