Northern Ireland announces 2014-15 NHS pay offer

11 February 2015 - 9:47am

The Northern Ireland government will be following England pay policy in 2014-15 on NHS pay – a one per cent unconsolidated uplift or an incremental rise.

Pay

A settlement has been reached for this year but staff in Northern Ireland do not know what the offer will be for 2015-2016

This will hopefully be paid this month, and will be backdated. The Northern Ireland health minister has yet to decide on any pay award for next year (2015-16).

CSP senior negotiating officer Claire Ronald said: ‘After 10 months waiting CSP members and other NHS staff in Northern Ireland have finally heard what the settlement is for the year to April.

‘However, we are still in the dark over what the pay offer is for 2015-16.

‘Northern Ireland NHS staff could be forgiven for thinking they are being deliberately singled out for shoddy treatment.

‘Our members are working incredibly hard to deliver the best possible care to their patients under really difficult conditions.

‘They deserve a speedy decision on a fair settlement for the coming year: this is what we, along with other health unions, will be demanding of the Northern Ireland Government.’

In the light of the current NHS pay policy of the Northern Ireland government, the CSP and other health unions in Northern Ireland are considering what the next steps will be in the campaign for fair pay for NHS staff.
