Commons protest at moves that could cut city nurses' pay
CONTROVERSIAL plans that could cut pay for Bristol nurses have come under fire in the House of Commons.
Debates were held yesterday on moves by a consortium of trusts in the South West to set their own pay rates. Critics say it will lead to wages across the region falling behind the rest of the country.
Bristol East MP Kerry McCarthy said ministers "still seem determined to remove the N from NHS" and added that she had received hundreds of letters from staff who were "angry and anxious" since the plans were revealed.
But Kingswood Tory MP Chris Skidmore disagreed, saying it was important to have "flexibility" at a local level.
