Danny Mortimer: Pay cap lift welcomed by NHS Employers

Danny Mortimer

Responding to today's Budget Danny Mortimer, chief executive of NHS Employers, said:

“We look forward to continuing to work with trade union colleagues and the Department of Health to agree how contract arrangements can be reformed and our employees benefit from a welcome lifting of the pay cap.  There is a great deal to discuss but the Chancellor’s commitment to fund the additional pay bill is welcome.

“Meanwhile, NHS organisations are working hard to address staff concerns and better retain vital skills. But they also need national support. 

“Increasing training numbers and improving access to affordable housing are welcome recent interventions to help employers recruit and retain staff, but investment is also needed in training budgets (known as continuing professional development, or CPD) as well as reform of migration policy and greater flexibility in apprenticeships.”
