The Royal College of nursing have commented on the pay rise awarded to an NHS boss at a struggling health trust.
"Nurses and health care assistants have had a two-year pay freeze since 2011 and have been awarded just 1% for this year and next. They are struggling to keep their heads above water financially, as their pay levels fail to keep pace with inflation. I'm sure RCN members will be shocked that the trust has rewarded its chief executive with a massive pay increase. It appears that there is one rule for the front line and another rule for the boardroom."
