Hope your all keeping well!
Nurses pay has fallen below an average of 8% in the last 10 years!
A mixture of poor pay and an increase of the cost of living have left many nurses on the bread line, despite the hard work that they do for others. It’s time to have your say for fair pay for nurses!
In just a few days the RCN 2022/2023 pay offer for NHS Agenda for Change ballot will close, so it is vital if your an RCN member that you make your vote before 5pm on the 5th of August 2022.

Student nurses are unable to make a vote HOWEVER; if your a student who is a bank HCSW you can make a vote by simply updating your work place on your RCN account.
How to do this:
2.Click on My RCN.
3.Scroll down the page until you reach additional employment
4. Click edit and press add workplace or employment and it should give you the option to search for your place of work! 🙂
And that’s it! This information will be updated on the RCN system and then you will receive an email once it’s processed. The emails go out on Tuesdays and Thursdays so keep your eyes out for it.
The email looks like this and it’s just a couple of clicks to make your vote!
The RCN are advising people vote REJECT because nurses deserve better pay than this! We work extremely hard! Better pay will lead to better working conditions and help reduce staff retention and in which case will enable better quality, and safer care that the public deserve!
Please cast your vote today! Your voice matters! #fairpayfornurses safestaffingsaveslives If you don’t vote for the here and now vote for your future nurses! 🙂
