Fair Pay For Nursing

What next for NHS pay

Our consultations on the recent 3% pay award for members working for the NHS in England and Wales have now closed. Members made clear that the award is not acceptable.

Consultations in England and Wales were carried out from 12 August 2021 – 13 September 2021. The consultations asked members whether they think the 3% pay award announced for NHS staff on Agenda for Change contracts is acceptable or unacceptable. The results of the consultations have now been announced.

The announcement for a pay award for NHS staff in Northern Ireland has not yet been made and in Scotland, RCN members have already voted to reject the pay award and the campaign continues.

RCN members have made their voice heard and ministers in Westminster and Cardiff must think again about how they are treating nursing staff. Members deserve to be paid fairly - nursing has earned it and our patients deserve it. 

Unsafe staffing levels hamper patient care. Fair pay is one major way of keeping people in work and attracting the next generation into our profession. 

The future of this campaign will always be determined by RCN members – this campaign is led by members like me in the interests of the whole profession.
