Hannah and Lauren Campbell, the daughters of an NHS nurse from Milnrow in Rochdale, have sent a letter to David Cameron pointing out the significant injustices, and personal impacts of his government’s policies.

Lauren aged 9 and Hannah aged 5, ask the Prime Minister why their mum, who ‘works long hours every day’ and ‘even nights and weekends’ – unlike Mr Cameron, deserves a pay rise of just 1% whilst the Prime Minister is happy to accept an 11% pay rise.

The sisters also point out that the fact that ‘bankers who sit down all day’ are also getting average pay increases of 35%, whilst nurses who save lives – unlike politicians and bankers – get a measly 1% raise.

Lauren & Hannah Campbell's letter to David CameronIt’s clear from reading the girl’s letter that they are personally and emotionally affected by these issues. Their mum, as a nurse, works long and hard hours for a salary that will likely just about cover the essentials.

NHS staff don’t pursue their careers for fun or to become rich. Far from it. They pursue them because they care about people and they want to truly make a difference to people’s live. Inevitably, however, doctors and nurses miss out on spending quality time with their children, and as such, they should be rewarded for their dedication to duty with a wage that reflects their hard-work and dedication.

The letter will be a stark reminder to the government that their policies are becoming increasingly conspicuous in their bias toward top earners.

David Cameron’s lack of care for the NHS and his antipathy toward the heroic work of nurses has just been magnificently exposed by two young girls.

Evolve needs your help more than ever!

We rely on the generosity of our readers to help fund the majority of our work - but we need a little more to make ends meet and enable us to grow.

If we can reach 1,000 regular subscribers, we will become entirely financially sustainable - and we'll also have a little extra so we can build upwards and outwards to make our work have an even bigger impact.

In the last month alone, our work on the Environment Bill has helped force a change in the law for the better. And, since Evolve was founded, our uniquely viral style of journalism has repeatedly put the establishment on the back foot and helped force genuinely positive progression.

But we want to do far more - and we need your help to do it.

The best way you can help us is by becoming a Monthly or Annual subscriber. This kind of regular income allows us to better plan for the future - firstly so we can pay the bills, and then so we can set aside funds and time to work on extra projects.

However, if you can't commit to a regular payment, one-off donations - no matter how small - also make a big difference to us, and we genuinely make the most of every single penny.

So, if you appreciate the work that Evolve does and you want to see us make an even bigger impact on the world, please think about contributing to our work in whatever way you possibly can.
