The average nurse has seen a
14 per cent real terms pay cut since 2010
, and earns £2,500 a year less than if wages had kept up with inflation, according to some estimates.
Three out of every four nurses (70 per cent) said they were financially worse off than they were five years ago, and just 6 per cent thought their position had improved;
One quarter (23 per cent) said they have taken on another job, such as working for a nursing agency or picking up extra shifts as NHS “bank staff” to boost their income;
In all, just 41 per cent of nurses would recommend their career to others, the lowest level for a decade.
