Pay and conditions in the NHS

Our trust has just made a big chunk of people redundant, admin staff, nurses and doctors. Last year my pay was increased 1.5% and this year will get 1% despite a recommendation of 1.5% from the Doctors and Dentists' Pay Review Board. For the next two years doctors and many other NHS staff will have a pay freeze.

Meanwhile MPs get 1.5% as recommended by the Senior Salaries Review Board (we'll see if they decide to vote themselves another 1% next year) and the Chief Executive of my trust got 14% last year and 16% the year before, which is high even for the bloated standards of NHS Chief Execs:

All in this together my arse.
