Pay-payslipMarch 23 2015

The Scottish Government has set out the details of national salary scales and uplifts to fees and allowances.

NHS Circular PCS (DD) 2015/1 follows the general announcement of a 1% pay increase for the health service. It details the revised pay scales for staff groups, and transitional and pay progression arrangements.

It points out that

•    For practitioners who also provide General Medical or Dental Services under Part II of the NHS (Scotland) Act 1978, the uplift will be £4,746 a year per weekly notional half-day up to a maximum of £42,710 a year (ie for 9 sessions).
•    In accordance with NHS 1989 (PCS)4, new appointments are restricted to five notional half-days.
•    The salary range for salaried GPs has been increased by 1% and from April 1 will be £55,411-£83,617
•    As the rates for GP Appraiser/Local Appraisal Advisers are based on Point AA01 (Appraiser) and Point AA03 (Local Appraisal Adviser) of the Associate Advisers/Assistant Directors scale, the circular provides authority for employers to increase these scales.
•    The GP Specialty Registrar Supplement for doctors in hospital training grades entering Vocational Training Scheme (VTS) practice placements is unchanged and remains as detailed in paragraph 6 of NHS Circular PCS(GPR)2014/1.
