Increase Pay for Healthcare workers and remove 0 hour contracts

This petition had 1,190 supporters

I would like to see Community support workers, Carers, healthcare workers and HCA's get a pay rise and also to stop 0 hour contracts for Healthcare workers and Community workers and get a proper contract.

Following another petition from a Carer I feel very strongly about this and I know I work long hours with little breaks at times, no travelling time between calls, and having 30 minutes to spend with a patient that needs lots of support, going out in all weathers, working on days off, administering medication in 15 minutes, when only nurses can do this in hospitals.

These patients need more time with us to allow us to provide a better service and give them the support and care they need without been rushed, or feeling rushed.

Sometimes they want to talk and have re assurance as they see no one else but us, and get lonely. As Carers we work extremely hard and our job involves so much and holds a lot of responsibility, we have to keep a close eye on their wellbeing and health to look out for changes and illnesses, we sometimes have no idea what we are walking into when we walk through that door.

We love our job and think of our patients like family, and there families rely on us to support them and provide the best service possible. Please help share and spread the word far and wide. I know nothing will probably change, as it hasn't in 3 1/2 years of been in healthcare but we can keep pushing and trying our best. 

If your with me on this please help share and support this petition 


thank you so much. Sammi xx
