Radiographers in the NHS are on strike for four hours today, the first industrial action taken by radiographers in over 30 years.
They are protesting about the decision by the Government, not to award a 1% pay rise to all NHS employees. Many other NHS employees took industrial action last Monday, 13 October.
The independent NHS Pay Review Body recommended a 1% pay rise for all staff, but this wasn’t accepted by the government.
Members of the Society and College of Radiogaphers voted by 53.7% in favour of strikes and by 78.9% for other forms of industrial action.
In addition, SoR members will work-to-rule for the remainder of that week. Emergency care will continue to be provided but pre-booked appointments and procedures may be affected.
