Frequently Asked Questions
In this section we will try to answer some of your frequently asked questions about any potential NHS pay rise.
When will a NHS pay rise be announced? Each year the independent NHS Pay Review Body (NHSPRB) provides recommendations to Government ministers on the NHS workforce, pay and conditions. This report is usually published annually between March and May. It would be unusual for a rise to be announced before this report is published and a decision made by the Government.
When will a NHS pay rise happen? Following the publication of the report by the NHSPRB, ministers will make a final decision on pay. Once this decision has been made ministers would usually make a formal announcement.
