COVID HEROES: NHS staff 1% pay rise described as “kick in the teeth”

 

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer is calling on the government to give the NHS’s Covid heroes a bigger pay rise than the 1% recommended by the Department of Health.

Unions are calling the suggested increase a “kick in the teeth” for staff who have given absolutely everything during the pandemic. But ministers say the economy is under huge pressure. Do you think 1% is enough? Do you think our NHS heroes deserve more recognition for their contribution to fighting coronavirus? Are our nurses and doctors worth more than 1%?
