NHS Payscales was created in 2022 by NHS staff who found official guidance unnecessarily complex and difficult to understand. The site is independent of any NHS organisation but we hope that you will find our information useful.
Our website is designed to help NHS staff understand some of the more complex issues around contracts and employment in the health service, including:
- How pay progression works in the NHS
- How to calculate continuous employment in the NHS
- Eligibility for High Cost Area Supplements
Use the navigation or search functions to look for other topics.
