“Remove the 1% pay cap and give us the money to give NHS Wales staff the pay rise they deserve” – Vaughan Gething
Welsh Health Secretary Vaughan Gething has called on the UK Government to remove the pay cap and make funds available to the Welsh Government so NHS Wales staff get the pay rise they deserve.
Vaughan Gething yesterday said:
“I’ve today written to the Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt, urging him to make the case to the UK Treasury to remove the cap on pay and make funds available across the UK to allow hard working NHS staff to receive a pay uplift of greater than 1%.
“Yesterday, the UK Government found more than £1bn to effectively end austerity in Northern Ireland. I fully expect them to make money available so that we can give our hardworking health service staff the pay rise they deserve. They deserve nothing less."
