Osborne reveals NHS pay restraint bombshell


Just don't forget the conditions of service. I know people moan about the pay but not many other employers offer such good holidays, who give time off in lieu in addition to Bank Holiday pay, and there are very few indeed who would be so generous with their attitude towards sickness (even when they know very well that some staff take advantage of this) and who offer reasonable job security and paid time off to do the continuing training that we are required to do. I know successive governments sideline us because they can, and because a lot of nurses are conscientious enough never to consider strike action. I would like more money too, wouldn't we all, but I recognise that the pay is not the ONLY reason I work for the NHS. I've worked in the private sector, too, and the support just isn't there. I think I had better remain anonymous because I don't like it when people shout at me...........
