Health workers in Northern Ireland are to get a “special recognition” payment for their work during the pandemic.

It is intended that all staff will receive a payment of £500, said Health Minister Robin Swann. However, it will be subject to approval from the Department of Finance.

Mr Swann added that he intends to provide a one-off payment for carers as well, describing them as “among the greatest unsung heroes” of the pandemic.

But he said: “There is still more work to be done in this regard and it will be significantly more complex to administer than the staff payment.”
