NHS staff in England get pay rise of 3% after their contribution during ‘unprecedented year’

UK

NHS workers in England will get a pay rise of 3% backdated to April 2021, the government has announced.

Those receiving the increase include nurses, paramedics, consultants, dentists and salaried GPs.

They are being recognised for their pandemic contribution during an “unprecedented year”, says the Department of Health and Social Care.

In a statement, Health Secretary Sajid Javid said: “NHS staff are rightly receiving a pay rise this year despite the wider public sector pay pause, in recognition of their extraordinary efforts.

“We asked the independent pay review bodies for their recommendations and I’m pleased to accept them in full, with a 3% pay rise for all staff in scope, from doctors and nurses to paramedics and porters.

“We will back the NHS as we focus our efforts on getting through this pandemic and tackling the backlog of other health problems that has built up.

“I will continue to do everything I can to support all those in our health service who are working so tirelessly to care for patients.”
