Postcode analysis of more than 100,000 NHS staff between 2010 and 2015, showed more staff are moving out of London to live and work. During this time, transport costs rose by 25 per cent and average house prices rose by 37 per cent, 11 times the average NHS London salary. We have presented this information in an easy-to-digest infographic, which also calls for all mayoral candidates to help the future of NHS workers with a commitment to:
- Work with London’s NHS employers and Transport for London, to review the scope to reduce transport costs for key NHS staff
- Provide key worker housing and prioritise new housing developments for NHS workers.
