Health workers from across our region have been taking part in a four hour strike as part of an ongoing dispute with the Government over pay.
Many NHS staff including ambulance crews and midwive at the top of their pay bands, say they haven't had a pay rise in five years and are now far worse off in real terms than they were in 2010.
In a statement though the Department of Health told us no-one would see their pay frozen.
"The 55% of NHS staff not receiving a 1% increase will get an incremental increase - the average incremental increase is 3% and the highest is 6%. The remaining 45% of staff will get a 1% increase this year and a 2% increase next year."

The East of England Ambulance Service (EEAST) says there could be disruption to 999 responses today as health workers go on strike in a continued row over pay.
In October thousands walked out over the Government's decision not to accept a recommended 1 per cent pay rise for all NHS staff. Today midwives, paramedics and hospital porters will be among those taking part in four hours of national action, from 7am to 11am.
The EEAST says it does not know how many staff will take part, but that it has been working with the unions to make sure that those who need an emergency ambulance get the service they need.
"A considerable amount of contingency planning has taken place in preparation for this strike. We have been working closely with our union colleagues to ensure that those who need an emergency ambulance response get one...
"As always we are urging the public to think about using alternative services especially during the hours of strike action. "If you need medical help but it is not an emergency, consider your options, such as calling 111, contacting your GP or visiting your local pharmacist. This will help keep ambulances available to those in the greatest need."
