Last week we submitted our evidence NHS Pay Review Body (PRB) to demand a fully-funded 15% restorative pay rise for all NHS workers.

And we repeated our polling from May 2020 again to show that 3 out of 4 members of the public still support at least a 10% pay rise for nurses and 4 out of 5 people support an annual increase in line with inflation 💜

Our submission includes:

  • Over 600,000 signatures and comments on 2 public petitions ✍️
  • The survey data from 3,127 Registered Nurses 🗣️
  • And their stories within 585 letters and emails directly to the PRB✉️

What did the submission say?

Make sure to check out our submission above as it contains loads of useful information to arm yourself with from our pay survey including:

  • 39% of all nurses are having to miss meals to pay their bills
  • 66% of all nurses feel that they are working in unsafely staffed workplaces
  • 99% of all respondents to our NHS pay survey supported a restorative pay rise
  • 61% of respondents to our survey, from across all unions, support a 15% restorative pay rise
  • A ‘Top Band 5 Nurse’ has lost an estimated £6,714 from their wage since 2010
