I'm in total disbelief
So they will be no better off when inflation goes up then, wouldn't surprise me if they leave in droves and then the NHS will be more short staffed than it already is.
They work so bloddy hard for so little.
That's exactly the word I was going to use. I remember just a few years ago (four maybe) that Mrs May said there was ''no magic money tree'' (tho' Rishi Sunak managed to find one), and that was regarding nurses who had not (I think) had a rise for about seven years then. It's an insult.
They are freezing the rest of the public sector.
I do understand the need to not bankrupt the country, but if anywhere needed a boost it's the NHS AND the social care sector. Social care will get nothing.
CPIH was 0.9% in January so already pretty much flat in cash terms.
I was looking at their pay grades and it’s shocking. My brother-in-law works on ICU and is grade 5. My sister is a manager of a unit and is grade 7. I work in education and would be the equivalent of grade 8. I’m at the top of our main pay scale (with an additional 2 points for extra qualifications) but have no management responsibilities.
I read that recruitment numbers were encouragingly high; but of course when they realise they are not getting enough to live on, yes, they will choose to leave.
After all that those have done on the frontline it is disgusting that the nurses are only getting a 1% pay rise.
I think there will be strikes over this and who could blame them? After the year they've had this is down-right insulting.
The way they are treated it's a wonder they don't all leave, but they wont they are do dedicated to do that's, why the government treat them the way they do.
I would happily pay an extra 1% in tax to give our emergency services a decent wage and working conditions.
I hope they all go off sick at least, they must be so exhausted.
I can't see them being able to recruit, especially as they've done away with the bursery for all students. It's shockingly disgraceful.
Rather different to Hungary.
Ministry: Health-care Workers to See 72% Pay Rise by 2022
And would you blame them...
I've never been in favour of strikes, but I have to say that this time, I think everyone should strike to support them. Unless that is, the government does a u-turn
They really are banking on the whole 'nurses love their jobs' angle and assuming that they will just put up with it arent they?
Even the nurses who love their jobs are struggling on their current wages and being forced to work in dangerously understaffed conditions. Then you have plenty more like me who cant stand the job!! (dont get me wrong Im very committed to giving the best patient care whilst Im there but I work the minimum I have to and plan on getting out ASAP!).
The NHS is already at the tipping point so the government just wants to throw it over the edge! Awesome plan.....

Terrible I have no words.
