NHS Pay Protest at Lewisham Hospital, St Thomas' & St George's - 5 June 2014

On 5 June health workers across the country will be taking part in a day of action protesting the Government’s decision to refuse a 1% pay rise to the majority of NHS staff. The pay rise was  recommended by the Independent NHS Pay Review body but rejected by Conservative Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt. Many health staff will now have faced a four year pay freeze, at a time when the cost of living has continued to spiral upwards.

Among the protests are a series of events outside local hospitals called by South London branches of the Royal College of Nursing. Nurses and their supporters will be protesting between 10 am to 2 pm on the day outside:

St Thomas’ Hospital, Lambeth
St George’s Hospital, Tooting
University Hospital Lewisham

RCN are not the most militant of unions, when they are taking to the streets you know feeling is running very high in the NHS.
