NHS Employers asks for nurse pay deal not to be re-opened

NHS Employers wants the multi-year settlement for Agenda for Change staff groups agreed earlier this year to continue with pay uplifts for 2009/10 and 2010/11 in line with the agreement.

In its submission to the NHS Review Body, NHS Employers argues that the settlement, agreed by all negotiating parties, strikes the right balance between fairness for staff and fairness for the taxpayer, while being affordable.

Earlier this week NHS unions joined forces to demand the government reopens the pay deal because of the rising cost of living. The deal was for an 8% rise over three years.
