Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has enhanced the flexible benefits package it offers to all 3,900 staff by adding Tusker’s salary sacrifice car scheme, SS4C, to its flexible benefits portfolio, in conjunction with NHS CPC Drive.
The SS4C scheme is expected to deliver substantial cost savings to the Trust, and is available for all permanently contracted employees. A carbon cap of 150g/km for new cars has been set in line with the Trust’s policy of carbon reduction and sustainability.
The scheme is being provided through NHS CPC Drive, the health service fleet management offering which provides NHS Trusts with a range of fleet management services, including cost effective car leasing, salary sacrifice cars, the management of grey fleet vehicles and expenses management.
The new scheme was launched to staff at both Warrington and Halton hospital locations through benefits roadshows and a series of internal promotions, posters and e-mailers. So far uptake of the scheme has been ‘extremely positive’, said Tusker.
Mel Pickup, chief executive at Warrington and Halton Hospitals, said: “We pride ourselves on providing a good benefits package to our staff and wanted to ensure that our employees had access to a safe, well maintained, fully insured and environmentally friendly new car as part of that. Our new salary sacrifice car scheme from Tusker, through NHS CPC Drive, ticks all those boxes.”
