Motion text

That this House expresses dismay at the Government’s offer of a derisory one per cent pay rise to healthcare workers announced in the Budget on 3 March; notes that NHS workers have suffered real terms pay cuts of up to 30 per cent since 2010; recognises the heroic efforts of healthcare workers who have been on the frontline throughout the pandemic and have put their own health at risk in order to help others; remembers the more than 1000 healthcare workers who have died from COVID-19; believes the proposed one per cent pay rise is an insult to healthcare workers and that their service to the nation should be acknowledged with more than just a clap; recognises that anything less than a five per cent pay rise is in effect a real terms cut; welcomes the Every Doctor and Nurses United UK campaign for a fair deal for healthcare workers; and calls on the Government to give all healthcare workers a 15 per cent pay increase.
