The Department of Health has today made a formal offer to trade unions, ahead of a planned meeting next week, in respect of a pay deal for health and social care staff for 2018-19.

The offer is based on applying this year’s English NHS pay settlement to current pay rates in Northern Ireland, and would represent an estimated 3% increase (or just over £60million) on the pay bill for staff on Agenda for Change terms and conditions.
