I have just changed jobs, I've worked 8 years for the nHS and have moved from a GP practice to the local hospital. The pay banding advertised was £16,800 to £19,655 full time, my working hours are 35pw. Anyone know what my salary should be?? I have just received my contract, a month late due to the first one being incorrect but this one looks wrong too! Either that or I've just taken almost a £2k drop in salary a year confused

Yes I was, I knew it would be slightly less as I've dropped a massive 2 & 1/2 hours a week but not by that much!!

It sounds like you've dropped to the bottom of the Band 3 pay point.

Ok, so if where it says current salary it states current salary band 3 by increments from £a to £b, should I be expecting £a or £b?? In accordance with the agreement relating to my band? If it's £b the it's £30 less which is fine and what I was expecting!

As them. You can negotiate to start higher up if it would mean a pay cut

Were you on band 3 previously? If so you should have moved I've in the same point on the band 3 same money per hour. It's nit unusual for payroll to mess this up, ring them on Monday.

Thanks all, I queried it when the first contract arrived but this is supposed to be correct! Just don't know which amount I should be expecting..

I have found they usually start you on the bottom of the pay band unless you were already on a higher point with agenda for change - and as far as I'm aware GP practices don't qualify? You should have got a starting letter confirming your salary point, what does that say?

They have agreed my previous service as we were on agenda for change which I know is unusual for GP surgeries. It does state point 8 on the contract which would make it the higher figure but the wording is confusing

My Trust will not start anyone on anything other than the bottom of the band unless coming from another nhs trust. GP surgery not classed as such.
