Ingram welcomes pay rise for NHS staff

Adam Ingram MSP has welcomed the news of a 1% pay rise for NHS staff in Scotland.

He said: “The SNP Government’s determination to deliver for NHS staff stands in stark contrast to the situation south of the border. While the recommended pay rise is a modest one, it will mean that once again NHS staff in Scotland are receiving a better deal than their counterparts in England under the Tories and LibDems or Labour-run Wales.

“We will always stand up for what’s best for Scotland’s NHS and the hard-working staff who go to incredible efforts on our behalf.”
