The Guardian - Chief nurses warn over deadlock on NHS pay

Summary of the front page

The Guardian leads on the story that the nations top nurses have warned the government that deadlock over pay is putting patients in danger and making the unions less open to softening their demands as the country heads for the biggest strike in NHS history. They say “pay and reward” is central to the dispute – blaming years of below-inflation pay rises for a shortage in England of 47,000 nurses

The front page reports on reactions to the return of Liz Truss – who on Sunday wrote in a newspaper that she never really had time to cut taxes and she was bought down by the leftwing economic establishment. Tories have condemned her comments and say ‘she went out of her way not to listen.’  

The front page also reports that one in ten police officers have slipped through recruitment vetting, with “hundreds” of officers, including some with previous convictions and close links to criminals, being mistakenly hired since 2020.
