The RCN is calling on politicians to end the 1% pay cap and pay a fair wage to all members of nursing teams.
Pay awards for NHS staff have been constrained by the UK Government’s policy on public sector pay since 2011. Currently a 1% cap applies. The Scottish Government’s Public Sector Pay Policy sets out a similar 1% maximum increase for those earning over £22,000. The RCN believes it is time to scrap the cap on pay for nursing teams and pay a fair wage.
