Default Nurses have balloted for Strikes 15th & 20th of Dec

https://www.theguardian.com/society/...allot-over-pay

[Hundreds of thousands of nurses across
the UK are to be balloted about going
on strike in a move that risks disrupting
the NHS this winter.

For the first time in its 106-year history the
Royal College of Nursing (RCN)
is balloting 300,000 of its members
about strike action and recommending
that they vote in favour.]


Truss give them a pay rise

All nurses, hospital workers and ambulance staff should be given a decent pay rise.
Hubby came home after 2 nights in hospital last night, he fell off his bike and had consultants, nurses, doctors attending him, amazing people.
I fell and broke my arm 7 weeks ago, again, everyone was brilliant.
Phlebotomist, nurses, on home visits.
I am down for my flu jab and covid booster to be done at home as well.
Absolutely fantastic NHS we have, now the government just need to appreciate them all and pay them a decent wage.

I support them wholeheartedly.

This government has treated them really badly both during and after the pandemic.

Give them a proper and worthwhile pay increase and invest properly in the NHS too.

Truss in Prague
said they are getting £1,400 rise

[Press release
NHS staff to receive pay rise


[Government today accepts recommendations
in full from the independent NHS pay review bodies
Over one million NHS staff – including nurses,
paramedics and midwives – to get a pay rise
of at least £1,400 with lowest earners
to receive up to 9.3%]

I disagree with you on that.

Without going into details, I've personally seen Nurses do a lot of work at a Hospital, some things that I wouldn't want to do.

It's really sad the Nurses have been pushed to this point.
It's not what they want to do.

However this shambles of a government pay lip service only to the Nurses and indeed all staff in the NHS.

They should be given more recognition for ALL their efforts both during and after the pandemic.
However Nurses have been undervalued by this particular lot in power at present.
I would fully support the Nurses.
They will be saddened themselves to even have had to think of striking never mind doing so.

I wish them total success in their battle now.
Much more respect by action is due for Nurses and all NHS staff, not the deceitful lip service this government gives them only.
Labour too though needs to really step up too and support them also with promised action to address their issues, if they win power.

And helping a TIBB member out is always a bonus.

Seriously though I'm glad you're okay.

I can't believe they never got a pay rise.
We usually get one every year.

A Nurse is all Nurses?

The hard left Daily Mirror trolling its tiny readership for likes

a disgrace to journalism and desperation for a failing business about to go bust

Let's be honest though, does the story sound like a lie?
