NHS Pay Ballot 2023

The Government have made a final offer on pay in a package that covers 2022/23; 2023/24 and non pay issues, as detailed in the accompanying information.

The pay offer consists of a three-part package:

  1. Non-consolidated pay offer for 2022/23 of 2% for all Agenda for Change Staff, plus an NHS Covid Recovery Bonus which equates to an additional 4% of the pay bill. This is in addition to the £1,400, or 4%, already received this pay year.
  2. Consolidated pay offer for 2023/23 of 5% for all Agenda for Change, except the lowest pay bands who will receive 10.4% to lift them above the Real Living Wage.
  3. A package of non-pay issues which the NHS Staff Council will work through to address staff morale and retention issues. This also includes reform of the pay setting process for future years. Full details can be accessed on the link below.

Our Campaign Hub is here, where you find details of the pay offer and how is was achieved and includes all the payscales and what it means for you.

GMB is recommending that members accept this pay offer as the best that can be achieved through these negotiations – but ultimately, members will decide.  If you reject the offer, you are stating that you are willing and prepared to take part in sustained industrial action, with minimal derogations.
