The Health Secretary has agreed a significant pay rise for nurses, but they’ll have to die to get it.
Health and Social Care Secretary, Matt Hancock has promised nurses £60,000, but not until they’ve finished their very very last shift.
Local nurse, Peter Thape is hoping to boost his £18,000 salary by dying of Coronavirus over the next few weeks.
‘With that 60 grand, I could get a mortgage on a bedsit,’ said Thape.
‘Or, pay back most of my student loan,’ he added.
