NHS nurses will get 6.5% pay rise without losing a day's holiday

NHS nurses will get 6.5% pay rise without losing a day's holiday”

NHS staff are set for a 6.5 per cent pay increase over three years as a cap on wages will be lifted on Wednesday for the first time in eight years.

If it is struck then nurses, midwives, ambulance drivers, porters, and other staff would see the end of a pay cap which has lasted seven years.

Workers will have to be consulted but it is expected they will receive higher pay from July, backdated to April.

Increases of a similar amount are expected to be replicated across Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, but this has not been confirmed yet.

Pay bands will be changed so that workers can move more quickly through their pay grade.

Frontline NHS staff reacted negatively when the Guardian revealed on 9 March that ministers had made an extra day's work a "red line" precondition of any deal. However, the Treasury, which had insisted that any NHS pay deal would have to be part-financed by greater productivity, was also thought to have been involved.
