NHS staff take action on pay

Health workers across the North West are taking action on pay today. 

After years of falling living standards, and now the refusal of the Government to pay even the 1% cost of living rise recommended by the Pay Review Body, NHS workers are taking strike action between 7am and 11am.     

Here’s a selection of photos from picket lines across the region:
