Motion text

That this House recognises the essential work carried out by support staff in helping the NHS achieve consistently high standards of care and patient experience; believes that everyone who works in the NHS should be properly valued, whatever role they fill; asserts that the media-driven divide between frontline clinical services and so-called back office support services is entirely artificial in the NHS; further believes that without support staff the NHS could not function, as those staff enable clinicians to carry out their jobs to the best of their abilities; further recognises that every day NHS support staff work round the clock to dispense medicines, maintain vital equipment, order medical supplies, book appointments, pay bills, manage computer systems, clean, cook, do the laundry and oversee the day-to-day running of the NHS; notes with concern that support staff jobs are often the first to be cut and that many of the services they provide face the constant threat of outsourcing; recognises that managers in the NHS are also under constant attack, despite the NHS being relatively under-managed compared to the rest of the UK economy; and welcomes UNISON's One Team campaign that seeks to highlight this important issue.
