The Society of Radiographers is to join a public poster campaign in support of a proper pay rise for NHS workers.
Fourteen health unions across the country are encouraging UK households to colour in or create bright, colourful window posters to display on 1 April.
The move comes after the government in England recommended only a 1 per cent rise for 2021-22, while this week Scotland announced that NHS workers would receive a 4 per cent increase. Northern Ireland has also provided £2,000 thank you payments to students, and £500 for healthcare workers.Wales has given NHS workers a one-off £735 bonus.
Meanwhile, there are over 100,000 vacant NHS posts and four in 10 NHS workers receive a state benefit while feeling burnt out, demoralised and underpaid during a pandemic, according to the campaign.
