The following is a guide to Agenda for Change (AfC) pay scales for NHS England from April 2018 to April 2019.
Currently, the agenda for change pay system covers all staff except doctors, dentists and very senior managers. Each of the nine pay bands has a number of pay points. Staff will normally progress to the next pay point annually until they reach the top of the pay band. Staff who works in or around London will receive a supplement on top of these rates which can be seen below.
However, in November 2017 the Government announced modernisation of the current agenda for change pay system.
When should I receive an increment?
You should take a look at our article on how often you should be receiving an increment. Generally speaking, this happens on a yearly basis until you are at the top of your band and is usually subject to performance reviews.
