The Government is committed to reforming progression pay in the National Health Service to ensure that the system is fair, consistent and sustainable.

Over 50% (around 620,000 headcount) of hospital and community health services staff are eligible for incremental pay increases; subject to meeting local performance standards.

All of these eligible staff will receive at least a 1% increase.

Two thirds of those staff are eligible for at least 3%, which is the average incremental increase. This is around 410,000 staff (headcount).
