Health unions have reached a new deal with the Government, with further strikes involving nurses, ambulance workers and other NHS staff paused as a result.

The breakthrough follows days of talks with the Government over the long-running dispute over pay.

This has led to a series of walkouts by nurses, ambulance crews, paramedics, hospital porters and other health workers in recent months – here’s everything you need to know.

What are the terms of the NHS offer?
Unison said the pay offer to NHS workers in England includes an additional one-off lump sum of 6 per cent for 2022-23 that rises in value up the pay bands, and a 5 percent pay rise on all pay points for 2023-24.



www.goldavenue.com/Buy/Gold-Bars
The one-off sum is worth £1,655 for staff at the bottom of band two (for example porters, cleaners and healthcare assistants), £2,009 for staff at the top of band five (nurses, midwives, physiotherapists), £2,162 at the top of band six (paramedics, health visitors, senior occupational therapists) and £3,789 for staff at the top of band nine.

This 6 per cent payment for this financial year consists of the 4 per cent already on the table, plus a one-off payment of 2 per cent the government has called an “NHS Backlog Bonus” worth at least £1,250 per person.

The 2023-24 offer is a significant increase from the 3.5 per cent on the table at the start of the strike action.

It does not include junior doctors, who staged a 72-hour strike this week and are yet to join talks over their own pay dispute.

It's not a tax free lump sum it's a pay agreement for 2022-23 that will be backdated to last April, so the more you earn the more you get backdated, and will be pro-rata to hours worked.

Calling a 1.5% increase significant is a joke, let's be real here. Typical take home after pension and student loan repayments for a Band 5 in England is about £2100/month.

1.5% is like £30 a month. The 5% deal amounts to about £100 a month. When utility bills alone have gone up by more than that, never mind rents, mortgages, food and fuel.

Not to mention that the Scottish pay deal sees most nurses get 15% to nearly 20% overall (for lowest paid). There's going to be a huge discrepancy in nurse pay North and South of the border.

Good for Scotland recruitment I guess - any single/unattached nurse without kids etc. living in the North of England must surely now be eyeing jobs North of the border?

Heck if you live in Carlisle you could probably commute to Dumfries & Galloway and get a several thousand £ pay increase for the same job . Less than an hours drive to D&G Royal Infirmary.

I dunno where the £3000 figure is coming from though, it's like £1200-£1600 for full time lower bands, and lower paid workers get less than higher paid.
