Lock NHS pay rises to increases in pay for MPs, backdated to 2015

Whenever the salaries of MPs rise, the salaries of every NHS staff member should rise by the same proportion. This should be backdated to 2015 to recognise the sacrifices of NHS staff over the pandemic and recognise the large real terms pay cut NHS staff have faced over many years.

Between April 2015 and April 2020 MPs salaries have increased by £14,872. Over the same time period, most NHS staff have had real terms pay cuts.

This is because when IPSA (the body that decides MPs' salaries) decides MPs' pay should rise, it happens. Whereas when the independent organisations that determine NHS staff pay release their recommendations, the Government can ignore it.

This is emblematic of a Government that believes there's one rule for them and another for everyone else.
