NHS Strike: On the Picket Line

1 Mins read

Nurses in the UK are demanding change.

Our frontline NHS workers are seeking improved working conditions, compensation for their undervalued work and a wage which covers the increased cost of living.

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) say they have been met with resistance from the government, particularly the Prime Minister who said that their pay rise appeals are “obviously unaffordable.”

Join Caighlyn on the frontline of the UCLH picket line to hear from nurses and union representatives why they have resorted to striking and what will happen if their pleas are not met.
