Gildernew welcomes £500 payment for health workers

Sinn Féin MLA Colm Gildernew has welcomed news that health workers will receive a £500 thank you payment for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The party’s Health Spokesperson said:

“It’s welcome news that health workers will receive a £500 thank you payment for their hard work on the frontline during the pandemic.

“They have been at the heart of looking after people and saving lives, often in very difficult circumstances. 

“We have been calling for this payment as a way of thanking our health care staff to ensure they feel valued and so that we can give something back to them.

“It’s vital that health workers receive all of this payment.

“The Minister must also move to support student nurses by increasing the nursing bursary and giving final year placement students the opportunity to get paid.”
