NHS pay scales

Wages for jobs with the NHS are regulated by the government so there are guaranteed NHS pay scales which determine what you’ll earn. These pay scales change each year so we’re bringing you the latest regulations which came into force on 1st April 2015.

NHS job bands

NHS jobs are banded. There are 9 bands, although Band 8 is further divided into 4 separate groups. The NHS Job Evaluation Scheme is responsible for banding each particular job on the ward and those off the ward. This scheme takes into account things like the skills involved, the experience needed and the level of medical training so that jobs that are distinctly different can be banded together.
