Nurses have expressed their "utter dismay" at the Government’s proposed 3pc pay increase and described the offer as "a big kick in the teeth".

NHS staff claim they are dealing with a "massive haemorrhage" of workers following the pandemic and said the proposal was insulting.

Hundreds of medical workers, both past and present, took to the streets on Friday and marched to Downing Street in protest of the deal.

Demonstrators gathered outside St Thomas’ hospital in central London before making their way across Westminster bridge to Whitehall.

Some held banners with slogans saying "Save our NHS from the Tories" and called for the Prime Minister to listen.
