Long term funding settlement for NHS and social care


Responding to the Prime MInister’s announcement of a long-term funding settlement for the NHS, MiP chief executive, Jon Restell MiP said: "Managers will obviously welcome the easing of underfunding. That said, the new money will not stretch to everything the Government wants to do, such as investing in integrated health and social care, and moving more care out of hospital. And we're in the dark on some important budgets such as public health, staff training and capital projects. Plenty of tough choices still remain.

NHS funding: tell us where it hurts

MiP is encouraging members to talk about their personal experiences managing NHS services under financial pressure. Craig Ryan explains the thinking behind the new campaign and talks to two groups of managers at the sharp end of NHS funding cuts.

To win the argument for better NHS funding we need to talk about people, not just statistics. We need to talk about patients and the services they rely on, and about the NHS staff who do their best to deliver quality care however tough it gets.

‘This is a stunning win for access to justice and working people. If you still need proof trade unions are important in this country this is it. Without UNISON’s tenacious campaign in the courts, the regressive policy on tribunals fees would have remained with us.’

The government has agreed to a 1% pay award for senior managers working in arm’s length bodies (ALBs) of the Department of Health, after accepting the recommendations of the 2017 report from the Senior Salaries Review Body (SSRB). Ministers also agreed to review the remit of the review body, in a move that could see its jurisdiction extended to very senior managers across the whole NHS.

NHS Pay Review Body Report 2017 - MiP response

The union for senior NHS managers responds to yesterday's report and government announcement

MiP believes a pay award of 1% fails to value the hard work, goodwill and commitment of NHS managers and other staff, who are caring for patients under intense and growing pressure. It fails to match inflation, running at more than twice the level of the award, and fails miserably to respond to the rise in private sector average earnings of 3.1%.
