GMB NHS staff gathered om Park square roundabout in Sheffield on Wednesday morning, campaigning for a fairer pay for all NHS workers.  

It is the latest in a series of UK wide demonstrations have taken place across August and September, as pressure mounts on the UK government to reward NHS staff properly for the important work that they do. 

Nurses, health workers, patients and the public are all expected to back the call in the marches.  

GMB was the only health union to reject the NHS pay deal in 2018, which meant that 40 per cent of NHS staff in England at the top of their pay bands saw their wages increase below projected inflation rates.

Katherine Mitchell, GMB Organiser, said:  

“The Tory Government wants to reward nurses sacrifice by handclaps.   

“Clapping won’t pay the bills or put food on the table for NHS workers who are sinking into poverty after almost decade of real terms pay cuts.”
