Nurses pay frozen for two years21st March 2011
NHS workers who earn above £21,000 will not be given a pay rise for two years in order to save over £3 billion by 2015.
The move will affect more than one million health service staff, including nurses, paramedics and therapists. Mike Jackson, Unison's national officer, said: "The government's decision to freeze pay is another bitter blow for hard-working NHS staff. The squeeze on NHS finance is already placing a heavy burden on health workers. They see jobs being cut, operations cancelled or delayed and patients suffering as a result."
