NHS Terms and Conditions (AfC) pay scales - including High Cost Area Supplement

Statement

The table below shows the annual values for the NHS Terms and Conditions (Agenda for Change) pay points including High Cost Area Supplements (HCAS), for inner, outer, and fringe London, from 1 April 2018.

This has been produced for illustrative purposes only. At the maximum and minimum of HCAS, the pay points have a whole pound value. Elsewhere, pay points may have values in pounds and pence.

For full details please refer to Annex 2 and Annex 9 of the NHS terms and conditions of service handbook.

Spine points are no longer used following the 2018 changes to the NHS Terms and Conditions of Service, but for ease of reference the table below contains the previous spine point that corresponds to the new pay structure value.
