Vince Cable, MP for Twickenham, was happy to give his full backing to the ‘scrap the cap’ campaign for nurses and other NHS workers when he recently visited Middlesex Hospital.
Expressing his support for the pay campaign by the Royal College of Nurses (RCN) and other NHS workers he said:
“The cap on pay for health service workers and especially nurses is putting patient care at risk.
“It devalues nurses, nursing and health service provision and is making recruitment and retention of good staff increasingly difficult.”
“After years of pitiful pay increases it is time that increases in pay started to match inflation.”
