I’m appalled that GOSH can have so much compassion for one group and so little for another.

Because all health workers including those described as ancillary staff need to be on the same terms and conditions.

My son was treated throughout his childhood in Great Ormond Street Hospital & brilliant although the specialists were, none of the children could have been returned to health without a clean & hygienic environment. Hospital cleaners are every bit as vital as any other member of hospital staff. The hospitals, the NHS, could not survive without them. This has to be recognised in their pay & conditions. Too often cleaners in all hospitals are given impossible workloads, time allocation per ward being never long enough so corners have to be cut, cleaning left unfinished at deadline. Cleaners then being blamed for any shortcomings when they have no control over their timetables. This needs to change, with adequate staffing levels, appropriate wages & conditions including recognising their particular expertise & giving them more control over how their work is done.
