Cross party MPs increase pressure against regional pay

Posted on: 4th December 2012

A cross party group of MPs from the South West will meet Hospitals Minister, Dr Dan Poulter MP, this evening in the Department of Health to increase pressure against plans by a “consortium” of health trusts to introduce regional changes to pay and conditions.

The delegation of 14 MPs led by Liberal Democrat MP for the West Cornwall and Isles of Scilly constituency of St Ives, Andrew George, will be speaking for many more when they call on the Minister to use his influence to encourage the health trusts to work within the framework of national pay bargaining.
