All NHS staff need a pay rise that’s above inflation, say health unions


NHS unions are today breaking with tradition and submitting a pay claim directly to the government on behalf of more than one million health workers across the UK. The 14 health unions, including MiP, are asking Chancellor Philip Hammond to earmark funds in the November Budget for a pay rise in line with inflation, with an additional £800 to restore some of the pay lost over the past seven years.

Making the most of Agenda for Change

In today’s NHS, you need to reward people as fairly as possible if you’re going to recruit, retain and motivate staff. UNISON head of health, Sara Gorton gives her top tips on using Agenda for Change to help rather than hinder relationships in your team.

AfC can be an enabler of change, not a barrier to it. Approach your union reps with an issue, and collectively explore how you can achieve the change you want in a way that is consistent with the agreement. Try offering up the problem to staff and their reps rather than assuming your way of solving it is the only option.
