The article focuses on the threat of regional and local pay for a government that is determined to drive down terms and conditions in the health sector such as nurses and National Health Service (NHS) staff in Great Britain. It states that any endeavors to introduce regional pay will undermine the whole infrastructure of Agenda for Change and create detrimental competition between employers. Also, talks on pension conclude that nurses will be paying more and getting less in their retirement.
