Pay In The National Health Service

EDM number 1298 in 1994-95, proposed by Jim Cunningham on 26/06/1995.

That this House calls on the Government to acknowledge and accept that only a national pay agreement with nurses and radiographers will be in the best interests of the efficiency and good running of the National Health Service; notes that this approach has been accepted for doctors; also acknowledges the little recognised, but invaluable work of hospital radiographers, whose primary role in the diagnosis of disease and the treatment of cancer patients makes it even more reprehensible that the Government should want to remove a national pay award using hospital trusts, in defiance of radiographers' wishes; and demands that the Secretary of State for Health recognises that because of the stability that national pay agreements brought to the NHS, and because of the current new labour market becoming more nationally mobile, local pay bargaining is an anachronism in the 1990s, and that national pay agreements are the only way forward for a truly national Health Service.

This motion has been signed by a total of 72 MPs.
