    Jeremy Hunt quizzed as to why nurses have to use food-banks.

    Jeremy Hunt quizzed over why nurses are using foodbanks

    The Health Secretary was interviewed on the BBC's Andrew Marr Show after Theresa May said last week there "many complex reasons" why nurses are increasingly turning to the charitable centres.

    It comes after the Royal College of Nursing claimed that nurses are seeking debt advice and increasingly turning to food banks.

    Mr Hunt said: "The minimum a nurse can be paid in this country is 22,000 - 27,000 in inner London. The average pay was 31,000. Is that enough considering the brilliant work that they do? I think many people would say they want to pay them more.

    I think they do an incredible job. Nurses have had seven years of pay freezes.

    See the full report and watch the video from The Evening Standard HERE





    Seven years of pay freezes !

    This point alone should tell us that something is badly wrong in our NHS.

    If this is not a rip-off of our dedicated nurses, then nothing is.

    It's totally ridiculous that nurses have to go to food-banks for help.

    Surely this has to be a wake-up call to the government that their austerity policies are just plain wrong.

    Dead right Zathrus.

    What really gets me with this government are the facts that they are willing to spend many billions on renewing Trident, building the crossrail tunnel, and installing new high-speed rail-lines up and down the country and yet they STILL stick to their austerity plans that hit the weakest, the poorest, and the sickest in the country.

    They REALLY need to get their priorities sorted out.

    Of course, that's the Tories for you.

    We always get the government that we vote for and saying "I did not vote for the Tories" does not change the fact that they eventually got in with the help of the Northern Irish DUP.

    And, they did it with the Liberal Democrats last time round too.

    This has to tell us that there are not enough "true" Tories in the country so as to guarantee that they will ever get a majority again.

    If the general election was run again NOW I am sure that Jeremy Corbyn and his leftie Labour Party would get in, as the country is just sick to the back teeth of Tory policies.

    Not to mention the removal of the Nursing Bursary. Teachers will be the next to have their Bursary scrapped.
