The Royal College of Nursing has said the Scottish government's final pay offer averaging 7.5% falls short of their demands but is credible.

It comes after the Unite union called off planned work-to-rule by its members in the Scottish Ambulance Service and the GMB suspended a 26-hour strike.

Unison is recommending its members accept the 515m deal.

Health Secretary Humza Yousaf said there was nothing left in the coffers.

The RCN had asked for at least 5% above inflation, which is currently 11.1%.

The nurses' body has confirmed two strike dates before Christmas in England, Northern Ireland and Wales.

The Scottish government said the new deal was a record high pay offer for frontline employees, including nurses, paramedics, allied health professionals and healthcare support staff.

Annual pay rises under the latest deal would range from a flat rate payment of 2,205 for staff in bands 1 to 4 and up to 2,660 for staff in bands 5 to 7, backdated to April.
