ROSEANNA DELIGHTED NHS WORKERS IN TAYSIDE WILL RECEIVE £500 BONUS

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has expressed her delight that NHS Tayside staff will be recognised for the hard work and sacrifice they have shown during the COVID-19 pandemic by receiving a bonus of £500 from the SNP Scottish Government. 

It was announced this week at the SNP conference by First Minister Nicola Sturgeon that all NHS staff would receive the bonus as a thank you, with part-time workers being given a proportionate amount. 

The bonus was one of several policies announced at the SNP 2020 Conference to support hard-working families, including a promise to extend free school meals to all primary school pupils all year round and a £100 million hardship fund to help those most in need during the pandemic. 

Commenting, Roseanna said: 

“NHS staff in Tayside have worked so hard to keep everyone safe during the pandemic and put their lives on the line to treat some of the sickest patients with the disease. 

“I am delighted to see all their work and sacrifice is being rewarded by the Scottish Government with this £500 payment. 

“It is now up to the Tories at Westminster to make sure NHS staff receive payment in full, if not then all their clapping on their doorsteps in the early stages of the pandemic will be worth nothing.”
