    NHS staff in England are to get a pay rise of 3% after the government bowed to pressure over its previous offer of just 1% which caused fury among health workers.

    The announcement has been branded “shambolic” by the Royal College of Nursing, after an expected announcement at lunchtime failed to materialise with a press release issued on Wednesday evening.

    Health Secretary Sajid Javid said: “NHS staff are rightly receiving a pay rise this year despite the wider public sector pay pause, in recognition of their extraordinary efforts.

    “We asked the independent pay review bodies for their recommendations and I’m pleased to accept them in full, with a 3% pay rise for all staff in scope, from doctors and nurses to paramedics and porters.”
