NHS Trust goes salary sacrifice
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital is now one of several NHS bodies to take advantage of the scheme, which is run in conjunction with Tusker, and has set a carbon cap of 150g/km on all cars that employees can order under the new employee benefits scheme to help promote its green credentials and sustainability.
Earlier this year, NHS CPC Drive announced it would work with Tusker to provide lease cars as well as salary sacrifice cars through Tusker's SS4C solution, grey fleet management services and electronic expenses management for the newly-launched service that aims to deliver best value to NHS Trusts.
Allen Scholes, head of purchasing and supply at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, said: 'There has been a very positive reaction to the scheme, which went live last month, and we already have orders into double figures. We are expecting uptake of around 2% per annum of all eligible staff,' he said.
