NHS pay scales 2017-18

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

A pay award for 2017-18 in Northern Ireland has not yet been approved or implemented in the absence of a Northern Ireland Executive. Northern Ireland pay remains the same as the 2016-17 scale uplifted for the living wage, as reflected on this page. Once a decision on the 2017-18 pay award has been made for Northern Ireland we will update the figures on this page accordingly.
