More than a million radiographers, other AHPs, cleaners, nurses, security guards, emergency call handlers, midwives, and other NHS staff across England will benefit from the three-year pay deal.

Since March when the offer was first made, the 14 health unions have been asking NHS staff whether they want to accept or reject the proposed pay rise, which would mean a 6.5% increase for most staff over the next three years, with more for the lowest paid.

With the results of these consultation exercises and online ballots now in, unions announced at a meeting today that members have voted overwhelmingly to accept the deal. NHS staff should now get the money in their July pay packets, backdated from April.

One union - the GMB - voted against the offer.
