NHS chiefs and health unions in Britain are understood to be close to agreeing a three-year pay deal.
There were also reports that a million NHS staff are to be offered a pay rise of 6.5 per cent in return for giving up a day’s annual leave, according to a leaked document.
Shadow chancellor John McDonnell later criticised it saying it would be “mean-spirited” of the government to ask nurses to give up a day’s holiday in exchange for a pay rise.
Such claims, however, have been described as premature by a report in the BBC.
The contract includes all staff – barring doctors, dentists and some senior managers. Chancellor Philip Hammond had announced an end to the pay freezes when he unveiled his budget in November.
