Doctors' and dentists' pay award 2015/16

Bank notes

20 / 3 / 2015 Midnight

Full details of the pay award are set out in the Medical and Dental (M&D) Pay and Conditions Circular 1/2015, and our accompanying FAQ document.

All employed doctors and dentists will be eligible for an annual increase of at least 1 per cent, either through contractual pay progression, or for staff at the top of their pay scale, through a non-consolidated payment. Most staff will see their pay increase through incremental progression by varying amounts.

The flowchart contained in Annex C of the pay and conditions circular, and in the FAQ document, explain who is entitled to a 1 per cent or 2 per cent payment.

The non-consolidated payment is payable in monthly instalments, with effect from 1 April 2015 and ending on 31 March 2016.

As in 2014/15, the non-consolidated payment will not count for pensionable pay, nor any of the other allowances and additions to pay in the various national terms and conditions of service. It will not, for example, count in the calculation of London weighting, banding payments, additional programmed activities or on call availability allowance.

The values of all basic pay points and allowances (with the exception of the salaried GP ranges) remains unchanged since 2013/14.
