Unions agree NHS pay deal for 1.3 million Agenda for Change staff

More than one million NHS staff, including nurses, porters and paramedics, are being offered increases of at least 6.5% over three years – with some getting as much as 29%.

The deal has been formally agreed by union leaders and ministers on Wednesday and will cost £4.2bn.

Staff will now be asked to vote on the deal, with rises backdated to April if they agree by the summer.

The agreement covers all staff on the Agenda for Change contract – about 1.3m across the UK – which is the entire workforce with the exception of doctors, dentists and senior leaders.
