3% pay offer ‘insult’


HEALTH unions are to consult their members regarding industrial action following the “insulting” 3% pay offer for England.

Nurses, paramedics, consultant­s, dentists and salaried GPs come under the new pay deal, which is three times higher than the Government’s initial 1% offer.

Pat Cullen, interim general secretary of the Royal College of Nursing (RCN), said the 3% was far below what was needed.
