Employers call for 2% nurse pay rise

  • Comment
NHS trusts have called for next year’s pay rise for nurses and other NHS workers to be capped at 2%.

In evidence submitted to the NHS Pay Review Body, which recommends a pay rise for most non-medical staff, NHS Employers said the rise must be limited 2% or the health service will face more redundancies.

Alastair Henderson, deputy director of NHS Employers, said: ‘A pay award which trusts find unaffordable will only cause further problems that will impact adversely on morale such as reductions in posts, vacancy freezes and failure to meet healthcare and financial targets.’
