They’ve been there for us. Now it’s our turn. Let’s show we’re with NHS staﬀ for fair pay.
The skills and dedication of our NHS staff have never been more needed. But they’re burnt out, demoralised and underpaid.
- Over 100,000 NHS posts are vacant
- 4 in 10 NHS workers receive a state benefit
They need your help to get a message to politicians: it’s time to pay NHS staff properly for the critical and important work they do, and get our NHS fit to face the challenges ahead.
To show you’re #WithNHSStaff, write to your MP, download a poster for your window and share your support on social media using our hashtag.
#WithNHSStaff is a joint campaign by the 14 unions collectively representing around a million NHS staff employed under the Agenda for Change pay system.
The nurses, midwives, cleaners, physiotherapists, healthcare assistants, dieticians, radiographers, porters, paramedics and other NHS staff all contribute in different ways to delivering NHS care to the millions of people who use it every year.Read more about the case for an NHS pay rise

Show you’re #WithNHSStaff for fair pay – write to your MP
NHS pay is decided by politicians and our MPs have real power to push for an early and significant pay rise. By writing to your MP you can turn up the pressure for NHS workers to get the pay rise they deserve.
Writing to your MP is quick and easy. Your message doesn't have to be long or complicated. Just a couple of sentences is plenty, the most important thing is to get in contact. There's tips below to help get you started.
You can find your MP’s email address here
What you can say
You can start by saying you support an early and significant pay rise for NHS staff. If you work in the NHS you can speak about what it's been like working during the pandemic and what a pay rise would mean to you.
Or if you've recently used NHS services you could talk about your experience with NHS staff. Ask your MP to support the call and write to the chancellor and health secretary to provide funding for an early and significant pay rise for NHS staff.
One last thing
To encourage more people to join you and write to their MP, write a social media post using #WithNHSStaff or WhatsApp or email friends and family to encourage them to email their MPs too.
