The Agenda for Change pay system applies to Health and Personal Social Services (HPSS) staff; it does not apply to civil servants in the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety. These HPSS staff have the opportunity to comment on their current job descriptions before their jobs are matched to Agenda for Change job profiles and a designated pay band. The Agenda for Change pay bands are only put into payment after a thorough consistency checking process has been carried out. Staff who are not content with their pay band after this process is complete can ask for a review.
