Supporting staff who work evenings, at night, weekends and on general public holidays.

The NHS delivers patient services around the clock. Where staff are required to work to cover services in the evening, at night, over weekends and on general public holidays, the NHS Staff Council has agreed that they should receive unsocial hours payments. 

The below table outlines the enhancements to basic pay: 

Unsocial Hours Payments:

Pay band

All time on Saturday (midnight to midnight) and any week day after 8 pm and before 6 am

All time on Sundays and Public Holidays (midnight to midnight)

1

2

Public Holidays

Staff required to work or to be on-call on a general public holiday are entitled to equivalent time to be taken off in lieu at plain time rates, in addition to the appropriate payment for the duties undertaken. On each and every occasion an employee takes paid time off on a public holiday as part of their basic week, the appropriate deduction of their normal basic working hours for that day will be made from their overall entitlement
