  • Nurses pay
    Erthygl: 2021 Mawrth 19

    A furious row has erupted at South Hams District Council. The conservative run council has refused to allow a debate on the 1% pay rise for NHS nurses announced by the government. Ivybridge councillor Victor Abbott proposed the motion for the full council on 25th March. The motion called on the government to think again about the pay awards for NHS staff. It has now been ruled 'out of order' and will not be debated.

They are burned out, traumatised, and stressed after over a year caring for hundreds of thousands of severely ill Covid patients.

    The clue is in the title. He served 31 years in the Devon and Cornwall Police retiring as a Detective Chief Inspector on the National Crime Squad and during that time investigated a lot of crime. Other parts of his service were in Uniform, CID and Special Branch.
