Don't halt NHS pay rise, CSP says

CSP press release published on 7 October 2013

The pay rise planned for NHS staff in April 2014 must go ahead, the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP) says in response to the Department of Health's call for it to be scrapped.

Phil Gray, chief executive of the CSP, said:


“This is a very disappointing move that shows contempt for the principle of working together in partnership to produce a fair deal for NHS staff.


“Those hard-working and dedicated professionals have suffered a real-terms pay-cut of up to 12 per cent in recent years and only stood to gain one per cent from April.


“The government should step back from this ill-judged position and allow next year’s pay rise to go ahead.”

Out of hours please call Becca Bryant, head of press and PR (job-share) on 079172 40819, Jennie Edmondson, head of press and PR (job share) on 07786 332197, or Jon Ryan, senior media adviser on 07917 091200.
