NHS Backpay award - Trust Change

Hi all, posting on behalf of my partner who works for the NHS. She has been continuously employed by the NHS for 6 years but changed NHS trusts in April this year.

Her current trust have said that as she was still employed as the previous trust on 31st March, the award should come from the previous trust. She has to date, received no communication from the previous trust.

We can find nothing online or in the official notices about this scenario. Does anyone have any knowledge or know of any similar situations?

    12. What happens if a member of staff changes employer after 31 March 2023 – who is responsible for the non-consolidated payments?
    Where staff are directly employed by an NHS organisation (e.g., permanent and fixed term contracts) as set out in Annex 1 of the handbook on Agenda for Change terms as of 31 March 2023, they will be eligible for both the non-consolidated payments. The NHS organisation who employed the member of staff as of 31 March 2023 will be responsible for making the payment.
