“Savings from public sector pay and workforce reform made a significant contribution to reducing the (NHS) deficit over the course of the last Parliament, saving around £8bn."
Greg Hands MP, Chief Secretary to the treasury.
Translation... We saved £8billion by taking it from the pockets of our workforce.
Assuming that the NHS employs 1.3 million staff (full time equivalents) that means that the saving was made by exploiting, robbing and fucking over every single one of them to the tune of £6154.
And he seems rather proud of it!
