Increase Healthcare Wages

Increase Healthcare Wages

Please increase the standard wage of all health care staff. The average British wage is around £28,000pa however carers currently only earn £15,000pa.

Why is this important?

For the responsibility that they take, the high pressures and demands required of care workers this wage is an insult. Many unskilled workers earn well above what carers earn with very little responsibility asked of them. This higher wage should apply across the board for all carers, HCA's whether based in hospitals, care homes or community.
