NHS staff voted overwhelmingly to accept a new three year pay deal worth 6.5% in June 2018.

The NHS Staff Council have committed to reducing the time it takes for staff to move from the bottom to the top of pay bands from 7-8 years, down to 4-5 years, and streamline the number of pay points inside each band. The 2018/19 pay bands are illustrated below.

 

START TOP
Band 5 £23,023 £29,608
Band 6 £28,050 £36,644
Band 7 £33,222 £43,041
Band 8A £42,414 £49,969
Band 8B £49,242 £59,964

Band 8D £70,206 £85,333

A typical band 5 nurse will see an increase in pay point of around 20% over a three-year period under the agreed pay deal.

Staff living in or around London will receive a supplementation on their basic pay. This is due to the increase in living costs associated with life in London.

  • Staff living in inner London will receive an extra 20% of basic salary.
  • Staff living in outer London will receive an extra 15% of basic salary.
  • Staff living on the fringe of London will receive an extra 5% of basic salary.
