About Us

Formed in July 2020 in response to the government’s oversight of NHS Workers when announcing public sector pay rises for efforts during the COVID-19 Pandemic, NHS Workers Say NO! is a grassroots self-organised group of NHS Workers and supporters, initially fighting against public sector pay inequality.

Over time however, in view of the worsening NHS staffing crisis, record breaking waiting lists and increasing privatisation, we have broadened the scope of our campaign to encompass the following goals:

Pay Restoration fully funded by the Government:  We are demanding full Pay Restoration to help retain much-needed staff and to start healing the damage of a decade of wage cuts and stagnation.

Protecting Patient Safety: from overstretched staffing to postponed elective surgery, we need major reinvestment to end the short-sighted policies that endanger patients as well as hurting staff. Read More

Ending Privatisation: for years the government have used NHS contracts as a vehicle to divert billions into the coffers of private firms. This has to stop – public money should be spent on public services.

We urge all supporters of our shared goals to mirror the values outlined below out of respect for the institution that unites us.

There are no entry requirements, fees or barriers to full participation of this campaign. We do not receive funding or have paid staff.

We welcome everyone who shares our goal and values to get involved in whatever way they can.

There are six values in the NHS Constitution, which we mirror in our campaign:

  • Working together for the future of our NHS
  • Respect and dignity to each other and in our tactics
  • Commitment to our common goal
  • Compassion
  • Improving lives
  • Everyone counts
