The government’s proposal of a 5 per cent salary increase for over one million NHS workers covered by 14 unions has been accepted, following a series of strikes. Implementation of the salary raise for the year 2023-24, along with two separate one-time payments for last year, was decided in favour of the deal by a majority vote at the NHS staff council. The verdict was influenced by Unison and GMB, representing ambulance personnel and other healthcare workers, whose members also voted in favour of the proposal last month.
