NHS Staff Deserve Pay Increases.

1. 25% discount for NHS workers
2. 25% payrise for NHS workers
3. Pay student nurses a full nurses wage
4. 20% temporary paycut for government officials
5. The above to be actioned in time for the next monthly pay check.

Why is this important?

NHS workers were on the frontline every day even before Covid-19 reared it's ugly head. It is not morally right to expect NHS workers to work long hours and punishing shift patterns in a medical war zone without having the proper PPE and acceptable remuneration.

We ask that the Government grant NHS workers a 25% reduction on Residential Parking Permits, National Insurance and Council Tax, and that it raises the salaries of everyone working on the NHS frontline by 25%.

New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has raken a voluntary 20% paycut for the next 6 months and set herself as an exemplary moral role model. The British public ask the British Government to do likewise and take a temporary 20% reduction in your pay. Now more than ever we need to have faith in our Government, and although most of you are working long hours trying to manage this situation and get the country back on its feet, we need to know that you are prepared to take a small financial hit to show solidarity with the British people who have had the financial rug pulled out from under them. Your 20% reduction could help to feed the families who have no idea where the next meal is coming from, or pay the rent of the people who are terrified that they are going to lose their homes. It won’t be forever, and it could make all the difference in the world.

In summary we ask:-

1. Grant NHS workers 25% discount
2. Salaries of NHS staff to be increased by 25%
3. Pay student nurses a full nurses wage
4. Government officials to take a temporary 20% reduction in pay

The NHS saved our Prime Minister's life. There is a way we can show our appreciation. Clapping on the doorstep is great, but let’s do something that will really make a difference to people’s lives.

Reasons for signing

  • I feel it is important for NHS staff to feel valued by society, and in time old tradition, monetary reward seems to be the most suitable option.
