South East nurses descend on Parliament to scrap the cap

RCN takes campaign to the heart of government

6 Sep 2017

Hundreds of nurses from the South East will join others from across the country at Parliament today, to press the government to scrap the cap on pay.

The rally will take place after Prime Minister’s Questions and nurses will have the opportunity to lobby MPs on how the cap on pay has affected them negatively over the last 7 years.

Speaking ahead of the event, RCN South East Director, Patricia Marquis said: “The rally will show the strength of feeling of nurses across the region. Our members have seen their pay drop by 14 percent since 2010.

“This has led to genuine financial hardship with some even having to resort to food banks to make ends meet.

“Only by a removing the cap and rewarding nurses properly for their dedication and service, can the issues of safe staffing and patient care start to be resolved.”
