Labour commits to preserving NHS pay

4th October 2012

The Labour Party has said it is committed to preserving national NHS pay and conditions.

Speaking at a health fringe meeting at the party conference in Manchester, shadow health secretary Andy Burnham backed nationally agreed NHS pay to preserve universal terms and conditions and also warned that the current health reforms put in place by the coalition government were a “fast track to fragmentation” that could see national pay broken down into local and regional systems. Already, a consortium of 20 NHS trusts in south-west England is considering breaking away from national terms.
