Letter to the Prime Minister about the NHS pay award

26 March 2021

Dear Prime Minister,

You will have seen the announcement from Scottish Government yesterday evening of a proposed NHS pay award.

NHS employees and other health and care workers across the UK will look closely at this situation too.

When NHS staff in England contrast the Scottish offer with what you have proposed for them, they will feel increasingly bewildered by how you are choosing to treat them.
One week today is the start of the new financial year when the most recent NHS deal will expire. Staff across the UK are expecting a new pay award to be in place for 1 April 2021, but your government has imposed serious delays to the process.

Read the full letter.
