Pay Review Body evidence 2018-19

Let's secure fair pay for NHS physiotherapy staff


Every year the CSP submits evidence to the NHS pay review body to try to secure fair pay for NHS physiotherapy staff. As NHS pay is a benchmark across the health sector it also influences the pay of members working outside the NHS.

For the 2018-19 pay round the CSP once again contributed to joint staff side evidence and also submitted our own separate evidence to the NHS pay review body.

Summary of CSP evidence

  • The CSP was one of 14 NHS unions that submitted a joint NHS union pay claim for the pay round of 2018/19 of inflation (retail price index) plus £800 consolidated lump sum in September 2017.
  • The CSP believes the evidence contained within the joint health union submission and our own submission, on recruitment and retention, morale and motivation, and loss of income in real terms since the Government policy of pay restraint was introduced in 2010 and expectations among physiotherapy staff of pay, fully justifies the this ‘catch-up’ pay claim. 
  • The CSP believes that NHS budgets are stretched to breaking point and the Government must therefore fully fund the pay rise for 2018

Read the two submissions to see the fresh evidence we have produced to underpin these arguments, and see what health unions believe is a fair pay settlement for the coming year.
