    Devon Liberal Democrats are calling for a real-terms pay rise for NHS workers after going above and beyond in a national crisis

    Cllr Julian Brazil, a member of the authority's Children's Services Scrutiny Committee and Lib Dem deputy group leader said:

    "The real-terms pay cut the government has put forward is an insult to all the NHS workers who have gone above and beyond during this time of national crisis. They are burned out, traumatised, and stressed after over a year caring for hundreds of thousands of severely ill Covid patients. On top of this, they have worked tirelessly to get as many people vaccinated as efficiently and as safely as possible.
