NHS workers across the country held hospital-gate protests on Thursday 1 April, calling for a 15% pay rise (with a £3,000 floor) instead of the government's recommended 1%.

St Thomas's hospital in London (pic above) held two protests, at two shift-change times, and University College London Hospital and Lewisham Hospital had lively protests (UCLH pic below). The London Transport Regional Council of the rail union RMT sent solidarity delegations to St Thomas's and UCLH.

The next date pencilled in for demonstrations is 12 May, "international nurses' day". The official Pay Review Body is due to report some time in May (on its recommendations for a pay rise to run from April 2021).

Meanwhile, activists continue to press the health service unions to organise for strikes.
