Doing well from the pandemic

Nurses have been ‘awarded’ a 1% wage increase with Health Minister, Matt Hancock, saying this is "what we think is affordable given the financial pressures caused by the Covid pandemic.”

What are those financial pressures? One of them is Steve Dechan whose loss making P14 company was ‘awarded’ £276 million in PPE/Covid contracts by Hancock.

From this money he bought a 100 acre Cotswolds mansion, another home in Cornwall and a third house for his parents in Exeter. He told The Sunday Times that he had done “very, very well out of the pandemic”.

While Dechan has been busy setting up three new homes with his millions nurses have been busy saving our lives with their 1%.
