NHS pay scales 2017-18

Pay scales for NHS nursing staff in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland from 1 April 2017

These pay scales are yet to be updated to reflect the recent three-year NHS pay deals announced by the Governments for England, Scotland and Wales. We will be updating the pay scales on this page when the pay awards for each country come into effect.

If you are employed by the NHS in England you can find out what the pay deal means for you, using the pay calculator on the NHS Employers website.

Please note there has been no announcement on a pay deal for staff in Northern Ireland for 2018/19. The pay scales and pay points for Northern Ireland in the table below reflect the payments made to NHS staff in Northern Ireland for the year commencing 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018. The Northern Ireland rates are from Northern Ireland Circular HSC (AfC)(1) 2018.
