Anger over NHS pay


THE Government has come under attack for failing to announce an expected pay rise for NHS staff in England.

Unions representi­ng NHS workers had been set to react to confirmati­on of a 3% increase following months of delay.

But Health Minister Helen Whately made no mention of pay in the House of Commons on Wednesday.

The Government was already under attack for recommendi­ng only a 1% pay rise.
