Pay rise for NHS staff announced

Our NHS staff work incredibly hard, day in, day out, throughout the country.

So it is great news that, as the economy continues to recover from the recession and dire budget deficit  inherited by the Conservatives from Labour, Jeremy Hunt was yesterday able to confirm that NHS staff including nurses, midwives, cleaners and porters will receive a pay rise of between 6.5% and 29%.

And housekeepers, fancy missing poor Angela off the list :)

Housekeepers seem to me to be pretty important, after all a few days in hospital would be much worse if you got no dinner.

I declare an interest since my wife works at West Cumberland Hospital, but as far as I'm concerned everyone who works for the NHS should be valued.
