£500 to healthcre workers is not much.

I'm a retired nurse who values his colleagues, hearing the same words of praise yet again, and the silence that followed when reward was mentioned

I cannot believe how outrageously unfair the decision was to exclude agency care and support workers from this payout. This whole exercise has been so badly thought out and executed. I heard on the rumour mill that it’s because ‘agency workers can decide whether to work or not’ Wow! Can agency workers also decide whether to pay their bills or not too.... Throughout the last year I know of many care homes and services that could not have kept going had it not been for agency workers - still true.
It is a sad fact that the private agencies are making huge profit from this emergency. Their staff however not so much - they deserve this payout as much as any other health and social care worker.

Agency nurses have worked their socks off during this pandemic and e posed themselves to serious risk of infection throughout.

ALL care workers deserve a bonus - including or especially agency workers who have less work benefits normally
