The Government have made a pay offer to all staff on Agenda for Change terms and conditions. The offer of a consolidated 1% to all staff at band 42 and under is welcomed. The unions representing those staff are currently consulting their members on this offer. You can read the full offer in a letter from The Secretary of State, Jeremy Hunt. Whilst the HCSA has welcomed this move, I have written to Mr Hunt to seek talks about doctors pay. My letter to him is also set out here. As yet we have not received a reply, and as soon as we do we will inform members.
At this point we will then consult with members on how we proceed, as you know we are still taking Action Short Of Strike and our next planned action is on Wednesday 25th February 2015. We still feel as that it is right to press the Government to respect the recommendations of the DDRB how made it clear medical staff should also be rewarded.
