Gower Assembly Member, Rebecca Evans AM, has welcomed a new pay deal for doctors and dentists in Wales, which includes a higher salary increase than the deal agreed in England.
The Welsh Government has agreed in full the recommendations of the Review Body on Doctors' and Dentists' Remuneration (DDRB):
Mrs Evans said: “This announcement recognises the value and dedication of hardworking doctors and dentists and their key contribution to the NHS in Wales.
“By going beyond the pay offer in England the Welsh Government are making Wales an even more attractive place to train, work and live.
“Together with our recent agreement on a pay rise for the rest of the NHS Wales workforce, this announcement shows the Welsh Labour Government is committed to investing in staff to ensure they can continue to deliver excellent health and social care.”
