HEALTHCARE workers will take part in another national day of protests over pay tomorrow.

NHS staff and union members will take to the streets in Brighton to demand a 15 per cent pay rise.

The government announced an above-inflation pay rise for public sector workers including teachers and doctors in July, but nurses were not included.

Protesters including GMB activists will gather at Hove Lawns opposite Grand Avenue from 11am for a "peaceful and socially distanced" march.

Nurse Kelly Robbins said: “We are feeling overworked and exhausted as many of us were forced to work longer, tougher hours, staying away from our families for weeks at a time, fighting an ever-evolving situation with inadequate equipment.

“While seeing one of the highest healthcare worker death rates in the world from Covid-19, we accepted the risk, determined to do what’s best for patients and the country.

“Ministers have been happy to ‘clap for the NHS’ but have failed to deliver real signs of appreciation for workers – excluding many from a well-deserved pay rise and resulting in yet another real-terms cut.

"The government has easily abandoned the very same people that have saved their lives.”
