Nurses are currently doing a fantastic job of dealing with the traumatic outcome of the Covid-19 pandemic, but are not paid any more for risking their lives for others.  We all clap for the NHS on a Thursday night, but this does not give them anything that is tangible in their pockets.  This, whilst other services like the Army receive enhanced pay.  Shouldn't our nurses be treated with the same level of worth and receive enhanced payments.  Or even better paid more full stop.  We clearly value our nurses, but when it comes to hard cash we dismiss them.  If we can spend billions of pounds to bail out industry we should be able to give our nurses a little extra, both in times of crisis and on a daily basis. We have left them exposed on the front line fight against this virus, with inadequate PPE and not enough testing.  The nurses care deeply about their patients and without them many more people would have lost their lives to this pandemic, including our Prime Minister.  Whenever they are called upon to go to the aid of the sick they are there.  We must not take them for granted as without them the health service as we know it would collapse.  Let's let the politicians of this country know that we, the general public, want our nurses to be treated fairly and we need them to show their gratitude to our fantastic nurses for the service they provide.  Not just in their words but in their deeds.
