Following the recommendation from the Government that NHS workers receive a 1% pay rise, and subsequent claims from Ministers that salaries for newly qualified nurses have gone up by more than 12 per cent in recent years, Channel 4 News have used analysis conducted by the London Economics Labour Market team in their fact checking series via Twitter.

London Economics recently produced a report for the Royal College of Nursing showing “significant real-terms cuts over the last decade.”
