The 2015/16 financial year is the second year of the two-year pay award that the Government announced in 2014.
The pay award offered a 1 per cent non-consolidated award for doctors and dentists at the top of their pay scale for each of the two years. This means that for 2015/16, there will be a 1 per cent non-consolidated pay award for all doctors and dentists on the top of their pay scale.
For those at the top of the pay scale as at 31 March 2014, and in receipt of the 1 per cent non-consolidated award for 2014/15, they will be given a 2 per cent (1 per cent + 1 per cent) non-consolidated award for 2015/16 (based on 2013/14 pay scale values). Those who incremented to the top of the pay scale during the 2014/15 pay award period, will only get 1 per cent non-consolidated for 2015/16 (based on 2013/14 pay scale values).
Please note that the recent pay offer the Government made to the Agenda for Change trade unions does not apply to medical and dental staff.
We will shortly be publishing the 2015/16 medical and dental pay and conditions circular which will contain further detail and figures for the 1 per cent and 2 per cent non-consolidated awards.
