Retired GP joins NHS campaigners for Evesham day of action

Evesham Editorial 2nd Feb, 2023   0

A RETIRED GP was among those who took to the streets in Evesham town centre to highlight the plight of NHS staff.

Dr Sylvia Chandler was among the Keep our NHS Public campaigners to take part in a day of action on Saturday (January 28).

Many passers-by recognised the situation of staff shortages and inadequate pay have led to huge losses to the service as nurses have been forced to leave for better paid jobs.

“The removal of bursary funding has led to nurses with thousands of pounds of student debt,” Dr Chandler said.




“The Pay Review Body admits nurses’ starting pay still remains below its value when Agenda for Change was introduced in 2004.

“At the moment the House of Commons Health and Social Care Select Committee has identified vacancies of more than 50,000 nurses and midwives in England alone.”
