NHS: Incentives

Question for Wales Office

UIN 178614, tabled on 12 April 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales, what assessment he has made of the potential merits of introducing a one-off payment scheme for NHS workers similar to the £735 payment introduced by the Welsh Government.

NHS funding decisions in Wales are devolved to the Welsh Government. The UK Government has provided the Welsh Government with an extra £7.3bn to tackle the pandemic; that is over £2,300 per person in Wales. Including a £5.2bn funding guarantee, £650m flexible funding and an additional £1.5bn announced at the Spending Review and Budget

We are also buying vaccines on behalf of the Devolved Administrations and so far, have provided over 60% of Covid tests in Wales.
