The Nurses.co.uk 1% NHS Nurse Pay Rise Calculator
We've built a calculator so you can work out how much you will earn if the proposed 1% NHS pay rise goes ahead.
We've created a calculator so that NHS Nurses and other Healthcare workers can work out the increase to their hourly and annual pay.
How Much Will Nurses Earn If The Pay Rise Goes Ahead?
Below are some of the details of how much Nurses can expect their pay to increase by, per week.
• Newly Qualified Nurse = £4.79 (Band 5)
• Senior Nurse = £6.03 (Band 6)
• Nurse Practitioner = £7.48 (Band 7)
What Will Happen To Salaries In May 2021?
We await Ministers' final decision on NHS Pay for 2021 - 2022 in May.
Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, has explained that the 1% rise is as much as the Government can afford.
The RCN, the major Nursing union, has made plans to set up a strike fund.
A poll over the weekend run by The Observer, reported 72% of the public feel the pay rise should be more generous.
However, some members of the public and a number of ministers back the rise, explaining that any more is not affordable.
What Do Nurses Think About The 1% Proposed Pay Rise?
In the comments section on our first article about this last Friday, we received the following responses from Nurses.
"I am an Intensive Care Nurse and have been for 12 years, We are on our knees feeling broken and exhausted every shift.... A 1% pay rise is disgusting!" (Julie Lambert)
"We can all try and feed our families on the applause from last year and the pay rise that works out at about the cost of one take away sandwich extra a month" (Thomas Boyle)
"Wow so the clapping didn’t mean anything" (Penny Corkerton)
"1% is an insult for the trauma we have experienced over the past year" (Andy Bennett)
"I’m in favour of nurses getting more than 1% they deserve more but and it’s a big but.. the care staff I work with are not getting this. They gave been working full time since the beginning have worked 72 hours or more per week. I am a trained Nurse and have benefitted over the years but care staff always lose out" (Patricia Head)
