The banding multipliers are reviewed annually by the Doctors and Dentists Review Body (DDRB). For 2008-09, the DDRB's recommendations were to maintain banding multipliers at current rates for another year. This was accepted by Government.

For 2009-10 pay round, the DDRB will consider the evidence put forward by Government, unions and NHS Employers and then make recommendations to Government.
