High turnout in favour of NHS pay offer in England

High turnout in favour of NHS pay offer in England

Podiatrists across England have voted overwhelmingly to accept the 2018 NHS pay offer, the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists (SCP) union announced today.

91% of members voted to accept the offer and only 9% voted to reject the offer on a turnout of 25%

Chief Executive and General Secretary Steve Jamieson commented: ‘This is a clear message from our members in England that they welcome these long-overdue reforms to the pay system and the improvements that this offer brings. Podiatrists have also told us that they want better pay and conditions in the years to come, not just now, so we see this as the start of the journey.

We’re really pleased with the high turnout, which sends a clear message that our members expect to be paid fairly for their commitment and expertise which results in life-improving podiatric interventions for patients every day.’
