NHS pay rise and when it could be paid

today6 July 2022 8

Background
share close

The Government signing off on a 3 percent pay increase for all salaried NHS staff could be close, as the process reaches its final stages. While it will be the second pay increase in as many years for employees, health groups are claiming it is still not enough to make up for over 10 years of real-terms wage cuts.

Nurses United UK have said that now an NHS pay award is months overdue and it is abundantly clear the “claps meant nothing” during the height of the pandemic.

But, with recent evidence submitted to the NHS’s pay review body, all indications point towards agreeing to the proposal’s suggestion, or the Government formulating their own plan very soon.

How much would NHS pay increase?

Any increase in 2022, would see all salaried staff receive a 3 percent boost to their pay. It comes just 12 months after another 3 percent rise for all NHS staff, which included the likes of paramedics, consultants, dentists and salaried GPs.

The last time wages were raised, it meant an additional £1,000 a year for nurses, while many porters and cleaners received around £540.

This time round, it would mean nurses on a starting salary of £25,655, would move to roughly £26,424. A junior doctor on £29,384 rising to £30,265 and a dental nurse going from £22,549 to £23,225.

Though the Trades Union Congress (TUC), argues this would mean the likes nurses and paramedics would still see their pay cut by £2,000 when adjusted for inflation.

When will it be paid?

Increasing NHS pay is a long process, with many stages, consultations and political point scoring. At present, a new deal for NHS staff is yet to be finalised, but has gone through most of the five stages which is required before being signed off.

Following the publication of evidence submitted to the NHS Pay Review Body (NHSPRB) by the Department of Health and Social Care for the 2022 to 2023 pay round, the process should be in Stage 4.

According to Nursing Notes, Governments can then either decide to accept the findings and implement the recommendations of the NHSPRB report or opt instead to implement their own solution.

It then goes to Stage 5, meaning the Government would usually backdate the pay rise to April 1 of the financial year. Currently, the pay increase is majorly overdue and no official date has been announced.
