Changes to Pay and Conditions for NHS staff Covered by Agenda for Change

The Scottish government has published circulars outlining the changes to pay and conditions for NHS staff which come into place on April 1st 2010. Detail will be available on the STAC website and have been sent to all UNISON health branches.

2020-21 is that last year of the three year pay deal agreed in 2018. As part of that deal work was undertaken to simplify the Agenda for Change pay structure: removing overlaps between pay bands and allow less time to reach the top of bands. Further detail is available in the circulars. The lowest available wage in NHS Scotland will be £9.45 per hour.

Circulars also include updates on the Scottish Distant Islands Allowance rates which have been uplifted by 2.95%.
