NHS 1% pay rise ‘must be applied to all staff’, say employers


A disgrace that they it is suggested that this pay increase is not paid across the board. There appears to be 1 rule for folk who are directly dealing with patient care and another for those who direct them. Sadly this continues because everything appears financially led, to the point that poor recruitment and retention leads to more stress and sickness for the folk who deal with patients daily and at times the poor recriutment & retention is also used as an excuse used to cut already vulnerable services / beds in hospitals despite an increase in the need for them by an ageing population. Who in management or the professions is questionning or challenging these issues at a high level, publicly . Unfortunately despite what is going on, there also appears to be no healthy questioning or debate allowed within the NHS, because the reality is that the poor folk on the ground who struggle to make ends meet are too frightened to say anything, without a danger of dismissal or being thought to cause trouble. There ought to be a forum/culture where much of the decision making should be accountable to an individual/ analysed before being accepted. There seems to be little questioning of the decision makers within the NHS - why ? in this evidence based world ? .
