After years of your pay being held back by government in the name of austerity, the NHS trade unions decided enough was enough. So, we put in a pay claim for the NHS in England in 2017 and the government responded by agreeing to talk to us.

As a result of those negotiations we have agreed a three year pay deal for NHS staff in England. We have also agreed benefits and changes to the pay structure to make it better and fairer. Crucially, the government has committed new money to pay for the deal – not money taken from patient care.
