Tusker is providing its salary sacrifice car scheme, SS4C, in conjunction with NHS CPC Drive to Salisbury NHS Trust for its 3,000 employees as part of its flexible staff benefits scheme.
The scheme is open to all permanent hospital staff who can surrender a proportion of their salary in return for a new car through Tusker’s SS4C scheme, which has proved so popular with organisations throughout both public and private sectors.
It has been promoted to Salisbury staff through two roadshows and a series of internal promotions, posters and emailers. So far uptake of the scheme has been brisk, said Tusker.
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, for which Tusker is the solus, preferred supplier.
The salary sacrifice scheme, which is open to staff, spouses and immediate family members, is delivered through Tusker’s SS4C automated, electronic salary sacrifice car solution. It also includes contingency provision for redundancy, resignation and maternity.
The NHS CPC Drive initiative launched early last year and provides a single platform to deliver a range of fleet services available to any of the 400-plus NHS Trusts nationally.
Head of fleet services at NHS CPC Drive Julian Clarke said: “Salisbury joins a growing number of NHS Trusts, who have taken up the salary sacrifice car scheme offering with CPC Drive, which we launched in April last year.
“Trusts like the fact that the scheme is completely online and has a net zero cost to the participating organisation. Also, by taking the scheme, they have access to public sector discounts and cheaper cars through the national procurement framework agreements.”
Tusker head of account management Veronica Steele added: “We are delighted to welcome Salisbury NHS Trust as the latest addition to the growing number of both public and private sector organisations that are signing up to our market-leading salary sacrifice car solution, SS4C.”
