NHS staff deserve a real-terms pay rise.
A real-terms pay cut is an insult to all the NHS workers who have gone above and beyond during this pandemic.
Now is not the time to be offering a measly £3.50 a week to the NHS workers who have been tireless in their efforts throughout the last year.
The NHS is an incredible British institution and is made so because of the tireless efforts of their staff. Who are, even now, continuing to treat those in hospital and vaccinate hundreds of thousands of people every day.
The Government has consistently failed the NHS workers who have worked to keep us all safe, from dodgy PPE to the ludicrous bill for the Test and Trace system, now running to a staggering £37bn. It is scandalous that while some consultants earn more in one week than nurses earn in a whole year, the Government believes it is fair to cut NHS workers’ salaries.
Join our call for a proper and substantial real-terms pay rise now, that recognises the sacrifice and hard work of all NHS and social care workers throughout this pandemic.
