Hi there, 

So, my wife recently returned to work (after pregnancy leave) to work on the Covid ward at her hospital. She is an A&E Nurse and upon recieving her 1st pay check was highly disappointed to find she had been taxed to bits, which I feel is wrong.

I felt this was wrong as she had returned to work on the very frontline where cases of Covid being present in her area of work is confirmed and the viral load is high so, I'd like to build some support to have the PAYE returned to all frontline staff that work with patients confirmed to have Covid. 

That includes the paramedics, the clerical staff, Doctors, Nurses and healthcare assistants working specificly on the Covid wards as this is where the risk is greatest and despite knowing they are walking into the lions den these frontline heroes go to work everyday to help those of us most in need, surely they deserve some special finacial recognition that they are going above and beyond what they signed up for.

I have started this pettiton today I have seen that the government is offering Nurses a 1% pay rise, surely we can do better for those that have put themselves and their families at risk to look after the most poorley patients.

Thanks for your support
