Anger as Government threatens NHS workers with ‘paltry’ 1% pay rise or more cuts

Ministers’ position shows a complete disregard for NHS workers as DHSC Pay Review Body submission is six weeks late

GMB, the union for NHS workers, has slammed the Government after its evidence to the NHS Pay Review Body suggested that NHS staff could face either a pay rise of just 1 per cent – or more cuts.

The Department for Health and Social Care submission is six weeks late, which has delayed a planned decision on NHS pay which should have been implemented in April.

In the evidence, the Department stated (visit here) that ‘the Government assumed a headline pay award of 1% for NHS staff. Anything higher would require re-prioritisation’ of resources.
