London, August 8

Hundreds of nurses and other healthcare professionals took to the streets in different parts of the UK on Saturday to demand fair pay for the state-funded National Health Service (NHS) staff, who have been hailed as heroes for their work during the pandemic.

Most public sector workers, including doctors, are set to get an above inflation pay rise after the government announced a pay hike last month. But this would not include more than 1 million NHS staff such as nurses, cleaners and care assistants who are on contract. — PTI
