Nurse and midwife strike action suspended after new pay offer


If this 1%, previously recommended by the Pay Review Body, is 'the best that can be achieved by negotiations' and 'signal the start of a period of negotiations to deliver long term pay reform in the NHS' then I am even more worried about the future of the NHS. Just feels like this government could claim they listened, gave staff what they wanted and secured patients care. This should of happened when they got elected, not 100 days before the next election. It's not a 10% rise which would be more like what staff are worth, and that would secure the staff needed for safe patients care.
