Years of underfunding have left NHS workers underpaid, overstretched and demoralised says GMB Union

GMB has responded to analysis by the Labour Party showing hundreds of ‘significant’ or ‘extreme’ risks to patient safety across NHS Trusts.

Rachel Harrison, GMB National Officer, said:

“These shocking findings expose the desperate state of health funding as we approach winter and the second wave.

“Our healthcare heroes deserve better. That means safe staffing levels and a proper pay increase, not dangerous buildings and budgets that can't make ends meet.

“Years of underfunding have left NHS workers underpaid, overstretched and demoralised. “It's time for a full funding settlement that gives the NHS the resources it needs.”
