Pay journey tool

NHS Terms and Conditions of Service - 2018

This tool shows in detail how the basic pay of individual staff will change during a transitional period to the new pay system.  This will help staff to understand what they can expect to see in their basic pay packet demonstrating the annual cost of living increase and their individual progression through the pay system.

You will need the following information to use this tool: pay band, starting year, years of experience, current spine point and month of pay step date.  

The uplift to pay scales in 2021/22 (the year after the three year deal) is not yet known, but the tool allows you to enter a percentage uplift figure for illustrative purposes.


The above tool shows what individuals will receive over the course of the agreement. To see how the three year agreement compares to what individuals might have otherwise received under the previous pay structure, see our further pay details page.
