NHS staff to get at least £1,400 pay rise and all police officers to receive £1,900 | Politics News



NHS staff will get at least a 4.5% pay rise and police officers will receive £1,900 after a public sector pay review.

All police ranks will get the same amount of extra pay from 1 September, with those on the lowest pay getting an uplift of up to 8.8% and those on the highest receiving between 0.6% and 1.8% increase in their annual salary.

The minimum starting salary for a police constable degree apprentice will be raised to £23,556 from 1 September.

More than a million nurses, paramedics, midwives, porters and cleaners will get a pay rise of at least £1,400, with the lowest earners receiving up to a 9.3% increase backdated to April, the Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) said.

Eligible dentists and doctors will receive a 4.5% pay rise after the department accepted the recommendations of the independent NHS pay review bodies in full.

Home Secretary Priti Patel announced the police pay decision after accepting the recommendations of the Police Remuneration Review Body in full.

Ms Patel said: “I am pleased to be able to accept the pay review body recommendations in full so that all police officers see a £1,900 salary uplift.

“It is right that we recognise the extraordinary work of our officers who day in, day out, work tirelessly to keep our streets, communities and country safe.”

London Weighting and the Police Dog Handlers’ Allowance will also receive a 5% increase.
