BOSTU is working alongside the other 13 unions covered by Agenda for Change for a significant pay rise for NHS staff, that is delivered early and fully funded.

This is crucial to recognise the loss in pay that has come from a decade of austerity, and the value of NHS staff that has been so clearly demonstrated during the pandemic. With recruitment and retention a key government target, fair pay is needed to ensure the NHS is sustainable into the future.

To get this message to politicians, we are asking members to show that we are all #WithNHSStaff:

  • write to your MP and other elected representatives
  • download a poster and display at work or home;
  • share your support on social media; and
  • let other members, your friends, and family know about the campaign

It is vital to make ourselves heard in time for the Comprehensive Spending Review on 25 November, which will set government budgets for next year.

The #WithNHSStaff webpage has all the information you’ll need, including support and guidance for writing to your elected representatives.
