Trade unions vote yes to NHS pay deal

agenda for change contract refresh - carousel

The staff side of the NHS Staff Council met today (8 June) to discuss the results of the trade union consultation exercises on the proposed deal for Agenda for Change staff. We are pleased to report that the consultation outcome was positive, and that the staff side of the NHS Staff Council has decided to accept the proposed deal.

The parties will now jointly write to the NHS Pay Review Body informing them of the ballot result. 

The full NHS Staff Council will need to meet to formally ratify the deal, and this is scheduled to take place on 27 June 2018. A revised NHS Terms and Conditions of Service Handbook will be published following this meeting, alongside pay and terms and conditions advisory notices.

Staff will be paid the new rates of pay in their July pay packets. Backdated pay to 1 April 2018 should also be paid, either in July or August pay (subject to local payroll processes).

NHS Employers will be publishing resources to assist employers in the implementation of the deal over the next few weeks. You can read the detail of the deal on our pay deal pages and the download the next steps organisations will need to take handout.
