NHS pay - now you can help us keep up the pressure

As you know, your pay is in the spotlight. Your strike action has forced the government into talks. Those talks are ongoing, but will only be successful in changing NHS pay policy if we keep the pressure on and continue with our planned industrial action - starting with the 12 hour strike this Thursday.

If the talks do not result in a new offer, most NHS staff will suffer yet another pay freeze in April. Recent options put forward by government also make it clear that if we back down on pay now, cuts to unsocial hours payments are likely to follow.

We are hopeful that a concerted effort by all members to take part on Thursday will convince the Secretary of State that he must listen to staff, their unions and employers and the public and resolve this dispute fairly.

We will continue to make it clear to the public that our dispute is not with them and will again work with employers to ensure that patient safety remains our priority during the action. So let’s all take part and make Thursday a success.

You deserve fair pay and the public deserves an NHS that is properly staffed, with staff being paid fairly for the vital jobs they do.

We will only get that if we are strong, united and determined.

Best wishes,



Dave Prentis
