In our written evidence to the NHS Pay Review Body for the 2017/18 pay round we made clear that there was insufficient evidence that targeting an average of 1% would make a material difference to the recruitment, retention and motivation of Agenda for Change staff. On this basis it recommended a uniform 1% award which the Government accepted.
