NHS Pay: England

The CSP stands #WithNHSStaff and continues to campaign and lobby UK Government to achieve fair pay for NHS Staff. The CSP are participating in the Pay Review Body process and are pushing a substantial NHS pay rise.

Poster for WithNHSStaff campaign for a fair pay rise

In March 2021 the 3 year pay deal agreed in 2018 comes to an end. This means the transition to new pay scales will be complete.

Some individuals in bands 8 and 9 may have received a consolidated payment in year 3 and as a result are in between the final pay points. It has been confirmed that the consolidated payments will continue in 2021 and will be reviewed after the 2021/2022 pay outcome is confirmed. As a minimum, the intention is that no individual will experience a reduction in pay.

Further information and the updated pay scale is available here.

Pay Review Process

The CSP has submitted evidence to the Pay Review Body and attended an oral evidence session pushing for a substantial pay rise for NHS Staff. The Pay Review Body will make their recommendations in May/June 2021. UK ministers will consider this recommendation and decide whether to implement it or not.

It is vital we continue to lobby MP's across England to support the #WithNHSStaff campaign and to influence the government to give a substantial and well deserved pay rise to NHS Staff.

Further information on these two elements can be found on the NHS Employers website
