To Matt Hancock, Minister for Health
Anthony, petition starter and registered nurse: "COVID cases are on the rise, and NHS staff like me are worried. I love working as a nurse, it's incredibly rewarding. There's nothing like having that buzz of making a difference and it's why I first came into nursing.
But the average nurse in the UK has lost 20% of income after a decade of tiny pay changes way under inflation.  It’s not surprising that there are 100,000 vacancies within our NHS.  And that lots of us are using food banks to get by."
If you agree that NHS staff deserve a proper pay rise for everything they're doing, please sign the petition below asking Health Secretary Matt Hancock.
To Matt Hancock, Secretary for Health,
Please reward all NHS staff for their bravery on the frontlines during Coronavirus - introduce a big and immediate pay rise.
