“I’m pleased that NHS staff are receiving a well-deserved pay rise this year, in recognition of their dedication and their tremendous efforts in battling the pandemic.”
Health and Social Care Secretary Sajid Javid MP said:

We will back the NHS as we focus our efforts on getting through this pandemic and tackling the backlog of other health problems that have built up.”
