CONSTANCE WELCOMES £500 BONUS FOR NHS WORKERS IN WEST LOTHIAN

CONSTANCE WELCOMES £500 BONUS FOR NHS WORKERS IN WEST LOTHIAN

Published date : 03 December, 2020

Almond Valley MSP Angela Constance has welcomed the news that all  staff members in NHS Lothian 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 Scottish Government. 

 

The payment was announced this week at the Party's annual conference by the First Minister  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 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 £100m hardship fund to help those most in need during the pandemic. 

 

Commenting, Ms Constance said: 

 

“NHS staff in Lothian 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 with this £500 payment.
