The NHS mileage allowance is available to physiotherapy staff on Agenda for Change contracts, or those with Agenda for Change mileage allowances built into their contracts. If that is you, you can claim for all work-related travel, except your commute between home and work.
If you are employed in the NHS in Wales a different arrangement exists: visit the Health in Wales website (see link below).
NHS Mileage Rates (detailed in Section 17 of Agenda for Change) are reviewed twice a year in November and June.
The November review looks at the costs of fuel alone. The June review looks at the total cost of motoring including fuel. Rates can change if there is a plus / minus 5 % change in costs.
The November 2016 review has confirmed that while fuel costs have been falling the change in costs over the last 12 months has not broken the +/- 5% threshold that triggers a change in allowances.
This means that the current 56 / 20p rates in Section 17 .12 remain the same.
The next review will be in June 2017.
Information specifically related to lease cars is contained in Annex M.
