Letter to the NHS Pay Review Body
If there is one thing we've learned from the pandemic, frontline nurses and health care workers, like yourselves, are what keep us safe and protected. You deserve more than 1% so now is the time the government to commit to the NHS, starting with a 15% pay rise for healthcare workers.
After years of government underfunding and understaffing, the NHS was left fragile and unprepared to deal with the crisis. As Nurses and other healthcare workers you have played a vital and essential role in keeping Britain going and deserve to see a fair rise in your pay after losing over £6,000 from your pay slip since 2010. Investing in Healthcare workers by giving them a restorative 15% pay rise is a step in ensuring that the NHS is well prepared for our recovery from the pandemic and beyond.
