Public sector pay awards for 2017-18
Pay awards for armed forces, NHS staff and doctors and dentists set out by government.
The government has today (28 March 2017) set out the pay awards for armed forces, NHS Agenda for Change staff and doctors and dentists in line with the policy of an average 1% pay rise in 2016-17.
The government asked the following Pay Review Bodies to examine how an increase to base pay could be applied in line with the government’s policy of an average of 1% across the workforces:
- Armed Forces’ Pay Review Body (AFPRB)
- NHS Pay Review Body (NHSPRB)
- Doctors’ and Dentists’ Remuneration (DDRB)
The government has accepted the recommendations for the armed forces, NHS Agenda for Change staff and doctors and dentists to receive an average of a 1% pay increase.
Chief Secretary to the Treasury, David Gauke, said:
It is always important to recognise the amazing work undertaken every day by our armed forces, doctors and dentists and NHS staff. The settlement for these key workforces protects jobs and helps repair the public finances. The OBR has forecast that the current pay policy will protect approximately 200,000 jobs across the UK.
I am pleased that we are able to accept the recommendations of the independent pay review bodies, and I thank them for their work.
