    The government is coming under further pressure to reconsider its planned 1% pay rise for NHS workers in England, with more unions joining the backlash.

    The British Medical Association and other unions said their staff “have literally kept the country alive for the past year”.

    In an open letter to the chancellor they called for a “fair pay deal”.

    Health Secretary Matt Hancock earlier defended the pay increase, saying it was “what we think is affordable”.

    News of the pay deal emerged earlier this week, when the Department of Health and Social Care officially recommended the 1% pay rise to the independent panel that advises the government on NHS salaries.

    The panel is due to make its own pay recommendations in early May, when ministers will make their final decision.
