Coventry MP Calls for NHS Pay Rise

Picture1.pngJim Cunningham, Coventry South’s representative in Westminster has today called on the Government to scrap the public sector pay cap for NHS Workers.

Jim Cunningham MP said,

The Government’s public sector pay cap has been a disaster for the NHS. We are 10,000 GPs, 3,500 midwives and now 40,000 nurses short of the number we need.

“Today Labour are calling on the Government to scrap the cap and make sure our NHS staff get a fair days pay for the lifesaving care they provide to millions of people a week.

“The Government’s derisory offer to Police and Prison Officers yesterday just doesn’t cut it. Across the public sector we need to end austerity and ensure those people who protect us and save our lives, are paid enough money to live on so that the stories of nurses using foodbanks are a thing of the past.”
