Royal College of Nursing

24th November 2017

Having spent fifteen years working in and around hospitals before coming to Parliament, supporting our local NHS has been one of my central missions as a Member of Parliament and during my time serving as a Health Minister in Government.

That's why I was delighted to meet with local representatives from the Royal College of Nursing at my recent constituency surgery in Wymondham. 

Having served as a Minister at the Department of Health, I have seen first-hand the life-changing work all those who work in our NHS do every single day. I welcomed the opportunity to discuss the RCN’s ‘Close the Gap’ Campaign, as well as some of the challenges facing NHS Bank Staff – particularly the lack of sick pay. 

Rather than accept blanket ‘caps and cuts’, I have been very vocal about my belief that we should pursue a new incentives-based approach to properly reward public sector workers who are working so hard for us all on the frontline. (To read my article in The Times on a new model of public sector enterprise, click here).

If you would like any further information on this issue or any of my other campaigns, please do let me know.
