Our pay structure explained

Within the Trust, colleagues are paid each month on the 25th (this may be slightly earlier if this date falls on a weekend or bank holiday).

The majority of NHS employees are remunerated as per a national pay scale known as ‘Agenda for Change’. This encompasses 11 pay bands, starting at Band 2which begins at £20,270 and running to Band 9 which, at present, tops out at £109,475.  A full breakdown of pay scales within the NHS, and our Trust, can be viewed here: https://www.nhsemployers.org/articles/pay-scales-202223

As part of these pay bandings, there are a number of pay progression ‘steps’. For example, Band 3 starts at £21,730 per year, rising to £23,177 after two years in role. In addition to this, there are yearly percentage increases applied to all wages, with this agreed at around 4.5% for 2022/23.

Additionally, any member of staff, regardless of age, will be members of the 2015 NHS Pension Scheme. While you can opt out, this means that colleagues contribute a small percentage of their monthly earnings which forms part of your later pension when you decide to retire.

Finally, depending on your role, you may be able to undertake extra hours or work which is paid via NHS Professionals, often at enhanced rates for unsociable work patterns.

Our leave policy

Annual leave within the NHS is worked out per annum (per financial year, running from 1 April to 31 March).

While this is slightly different for part time workers (and worked out pro-rata), if you are full-time (worked out as 37.5 hours a week), upon appointment you are entitled to 27 days of leave (worked out as hours), as well as eight general public holidays.

After five years of service within the NHS, this entitlement rises to 29 days of leave, with public holidays included – and finally after 10 years of service you are entitled to 33 days of leave with public holidays included.

If you undertake additional hours via bank (NHS Professionals) you will also accrue additional leave entitlement, which is paid out monetarily.

Finally, the NHS offers standard terms and conditions regarding sick pay as well as maternity leave. For sickness absence, this can be viewed here: https://www.rcn.org.uk/get-help/rcn-advice/agenda-for-change under the tab for ‘sick pay’ and ‘maternity pay’.
