No new pay rise for nurses

The pay-rise announced by the Treasury for nearly 900,000 public sector workers does not apply to nurses and other frontline NHS staff, according to Nursing Notes.

The pay-rise will see teachers and doctors getting the largest rise at 3.1% and 2.8% respectively “recognising their efforts on the frontline during the battle against COVID-19”.

NHS staff working on the frontlines to battle COVID-19 and paid under the Agenda for Change terms and conditions are surprisingly missing from the new pay arrangements.
