Members can register their views through the RCN's regional branch network and via the college's website until 28 May. The RCN has recommended members accept the proposed agreement.

Dr Peter Carter, chief executive and general secretary of the RCN said that the offer was the highest within the public sector and was the best deal that could be achieved through negotiation. 

He added: ‘Given the challenging economic climate and the government's tough public sector pay policy, this deal is a fair and balanced one.'

Unison is to ballot its members on the deal in May, and Unite's health sector committee is to meet on 22 April to discuss the proposals.
