"Ministers must get nursing recruitment back on track by paying nursing staff the wages they deserve", says Mike Adams, RCN Director for England
Dame Donna Kinnair, Chief Executive and General Secretary of the Royal College of Nursing said: “The Chancellor addressed a pay rise for nursing but did not deliver one today."
“The RCN fought hard to force the government to address this situation and lessons must be learnt", says Mike Adams RCN Director for England
“Funding our health and care service is a political choice. We want Government to recognise the skill, experience and responsibility demonstrated every day by nursing staff,” said Dame Donna Kinnair, Chief Executive and General Secretary of the Royal College of Nursing.
“If we can find out what is happening across healthcare settings, we can help to make sure staff are better protected", says RCN National Officer, Kim Sunley
“The NHS is nothing without its staff, from the lowest to the highest paid. Their ability to pull together has been shown in this crisis and the public is looking to the government to do what is fair by them all", says Dame Donna Kinnair
The independent investigation into the 2020 Royal College of Nursing (RCN) presidential election has been published today.
RCN Chief Executive and General Secretary Dame Donna Kinnair said: “I want to personally say thanks to all those who have taken the time to email their MP, asking them to publicly support fair pay for nursing."
RCN Chair of Council Dave Dawes said: “On 12 November, Council voted to adjourn the General Meeting currently scheduled for 27 November."
"The growth we are seeing is not even close to enough to fill existing gaps. The additional 6,000 nurses are welcome but that still leaves tens of thousands of unfilled roles in the UK", says Dame Donna Kinnair
