The **2024/25 NHS Pay Rise in England, Wales & Northern Ireland ** has been announced as 5.5% across all NHS pay bands. We have calculated the gross & NHS net pay difference. All figures are estimated! As previous years all arrears will be backdated to the 1st April 2024.

The table below lists the NHS Band, salary, gross & net hourly rate (amount per hour). The 24/25 pay rise of 5.5% is included. Calculations are based on 24/25 Tax, NI & Pension rates.

NHS hourly rates are calculated by dividing the total salary by 1,950 hours. The net (take home) hourly rate is calculated by dividing the total net (take home pay) by 1,950 hours. All calculations are based on full time hours of 37.5 a week.
