Nursing pay: what should we do next?
The 1% cap on nursing pay is putting patient care at risk. More nursing staff than ever before are leaving the profession, piling the pressure on an already overstretched workforce.

RCN members are taking second jobs and using food banks. They are exhausted, morale is low and it's affecting the care they are able to provide.

This poll is for RCN members employed by the NHS in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Please take two minutes to complete it and tell us how to take action.
