"Fair Pay Now"- The Nurses Strike
A photo story documenting the NHS Nurses second day of Industrial Strike by members of The Royal College of Nursing (RCN). Which took place on the 20th December 2022 in London. From the official picket lines at Guys and St Thomas NHS hospitals to the gathering of the protest outside number 10 Downing street. This was the first statutory ballot on industrial action in nursing across the UK, in the 106 year history of the RCN. The nurses anger has become action with the UK government rejecting a pay rise in line with the current UK inflation. The Nurses are resorting to food banks at work and healthcare and hospitals standards are suffering. In this story I also wanted to capture the ethnic and cultural diversity of the nurses on strike, coming together to support each other in solidarity, highlighting the issues and crisis facing the NHS in these times.
