My petition is for all the Nurses, HCSW’s and Paramedics working on the NHS frontline with coronavirus patients. As health care professionals we do this job, not for pay but to care for patients in all situations however, I am sad and shocked to see these professionals being exposed to this terrible virus with little thought of extra help, appropriate PPE or pay enhancements ,when working in a high risk area.
On the news, in the past few weeks ,we have seen many things put in place in order to support people on Universal Credits and self-employed, which I understand. But nothing mentioned for instance, about experienced HCSW’s on a Band 2, working frontline with COVID. Surely a fair pay and acknowledgement of this is nothing more than what is deserved to all the front line staff that go to work to keep the general public safe. Without these key workers in the NHS the ability to care for these patients would not exist.
I also want to address the staff that have come back into the NHS to help during this pandemic and urge the government to give these key workers a pay rise whilst back in service.
If the taxes do rise after this pandemic ends I urge the government to consider not allowing all of the key workers to pay high taxes when there has been no mention in the chancellor of the exchequers statement for any help to these key workers. Health professionals care for patients everyday with no expectation of a pay rise or more money. I urge the government to consider a temporary pay rise for all key workers in the NHS as surely now is the time to commend the commitment of the staff working in these uncertain times.
