The head of Guernsey's health committee has admitted that pay for nurses in the island is not transparent.
Nurses are asking the Policy and Resources Committee (P&R) to increase their pay rate to bring it in line with other professionals locally, with members of the Royal College of Nursing holding a demonstration at the Town Church on Saturday (pictured).
Deputy Heidi Soulsby said she sympathised with health workers who had campaigned for pay that's equal with other health professionals in the island.
She said: "At the moment, it's complete mess of a lots of different bits and bobs, different allowances... it's not very transparent for people to understand what they are entitled to."
P&R, which acts as an employer for nurses, said the States was to look to balance any pay increases to nurses.
