WE are calling on the government to reinstate nurse bursaries and commit to increasing nurses’ pay in line with inflation.
Nurses are the backbone of the NHS. They support their patients when it feels like the sky is falling in on them and do amazing work in the face of huge challenges.
But nurses are currently leaving the NHS in record numbers and fewer and fewer people are training to become nurses, because the low wages and immense pressure of the job mean it is simply not worth their while.
If you want to thank nurses this International Women’s Day - and help us fight for them to be valued - add your name to our petition. Together we can push the government to reinstate nurse bursaries and commit to increasing nurses’ pay in line with inflation.
WE are celebrating nurses because WE care about women and WE value the work women do. Show them that you do too by signing below.
