HSGE will reconvene if NHS pay outcome is delayed

In the light of the current political chaos, UNISON’s health service group executive has agreed to step up calls for the Westminster government to release its decision on NHS pay and publish the PRB report. The committee will reconvene later in July to decide how to respond to either a pay outcome or further delay. If the report has not been published by the start of Parliamentary recess (21st July) health members will be left facing the escalating cost of living crisis with no pay rise in sight until at least September. The committee was clear that in that case balloting members about the delay will be on the agenda.


In the meantime, all branches should encourage members to use the ‘email your MP tool’ to ensure politicians are left in no doubt about the damaging consequences of leaving NHS pay unaddressed.
