Tell the UK Government you demand Fair Pay For Nursing
The Department of Health and Social Care submission to the Pay Review Body in March outlined a suggested 1% pay award for NHS staff.
The Pay Review Body report is expected in May and will recommend the level of pay rise for NHS staff.
Government ministers make the final decision on what level of pay rise to award.
The government must give nursing what it deserves - a 12.5% pay increase. For now, nursing staff continue to be worse off than 10 years ago.
At a time when many experienced nurses are burnt out, exhausted and considering leaving the career they love, the link between unfair pay, staffing levels and patient safety becomes even more stark.
Funding our health and care system is a political choice. After years of inadequate support for the largest health and social care workforce, the UK government must take immediate action and fully fund a substantial pay rise for nursing.
