Nurses back maintaining national pay
NURSES in Gloucestershire have welcomed Chancellor George Osborne's commitment to maintaining a national pay structure for NHS staff.
County hospitals and mental health trusts were among 19 trusts across the South West considering a pay consortium to review pay and working conditions for NHS staff.
It is thought the move would affect 88,000 staff in the region and could drive valuable staff away from the county to seek better paid work in other areas.
Jeannett Martin, director for the South West region of the Royal College of Nursing, said they welcomed the Chancellor's commitment to national pay arrangements in his autumn statement.
