    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.

  7. Attacks on Home Affairs report author 'are wrong'

    BBC Radio Guernsey

    it is wrong for Guernsey deputies to attack the author of the damning report into Home Affairs, the head of the health committee says.

    Professor Catherine Staite's report, commissioned by the island's Policy and Resources Committee (P&R), concluded the Home Affairs Committee's "governance falls below acceptable standards".

    However, Deputy Carl Meerveld has raised concerns over what he said was a conflict of interest as Prof Staite is the wife of the chief executive in Alderney.

    Professor Staite (pictured) said that she was entirely impartial and used the same methodology for her governance review of the health committee, headed by Deputy Heidi Soulsby

    Deputy Soulsby said she was not happy with the response from some deputies to the Home Affairs report.
