Regional Pay (NHS) — 7 Nov 2012 at 15:50
The majority of MPs voted to support regionally varying pay in the NHS.
MPs voted to reject a motion moved by Andy Burnham MP (Leigh, Labour) which called on the Government to "uphold the principle of national pay arrangements in the NHS". The full text of the rejected motion was:
- That this House
- believes national pay agreements are an important part of the infrastructure that underpins a national health service;
- notes reports of the statement by the Deputy Prime Minister that there is going to be no regional pay system;
- further notes with increasing concern attempts by 20 trusts in the South West of England to opt out of national agreements by reducing staff pay and changing terms and conditions;
- notes with concern that an additional 11 trusts across England are considering similar moves; and
- calls on the Government to intervene without delay and uphold the principle of national pay arrangements in the NHS.
