Pay journey tool (England only)

NHS Terms and Conditions of Service - 2018

This pay tool was designed specifically for the three years of the 2018 pay deal and will remain available to use as retrospective tool for this purpose.

The tool will not be updated when the pay values for 1 April 2021 onwards are known.

The tool shows staff their individual pay journey through the three years of the pay deal, demonstrating annual cost of living increases in April, and pay progression through the pay system. Users will still be able to enter an indicative cost of living award to provide an estimate, for illustrative purposes, on how pay values may increase from 1 April 2021 onwards.

You will need the following information to use this tool:

  • Staff employed on or before 31 March 2018: pay band, spine point at 31 March 2018, and the month started in band (the pay step month)
  • Staff employed on or after 1 April 2018: starting year, pay band, years of experience, and the month started in band (the pay step month)

If you are unsure what the spine point at 31 March 2018 was, you can use our spine point table to help.
