Pay and Conditions

Agenda for Change (A4C)

The A4C system allocates posts to set pay bands using a robust job evaluation scheme. It applies to all NHS staff across the UK, except very senior manager and medical staff within the remit of the Doctors’ and Dentists’ Review Body.

The pay system is designed to:

  • deliver fair pay for non-medical staff based on the principle of 'equal pay for work of equal value';
  • provide better links between pay and career progression using the Knowledge and Skills Framework;
  • harmonise terms and conditions of service such as annual leave, hours and sick pay, and work done in 'unsocial hours'.

Annual Leave

To support your work life balance and wellbeing, we provide our staff with a generous annual leave entitlement.

Length of service

Annual Leave

On appointment

27 days

After 5 years’ service

29 days

After 10 years’ service

33 days

The above figures are pro rata for employees working part time. An employee’s continuous previous service with an NHS employer will count as reckonable service in respect of annual leave.
