NHS pay award enhancement announced for salaried staff

Yesterday, Welsh Government announced that the NHS pay award enhancement for 2022/2023 had been accepted, following a ballot of Trade Unions.

BDA Wales had one vote in this ballot, due to our seat on the NHS All Wales Trade Union Partnership Forum. The partnership forum gave its collected vote yesterday.

The enhanced pay offer for 22/23 comprises an additional 3%, 1.5% consolidated and 1.5% non-consolidated on top of the increase paid earlier this year. In total, this equates to an additional 7.6% on the NHS pay bill for 22/23.

We will continue to engage in future pay negotiations, as well as in the implementation of these pay changes.
