- standard rate will be increased to £156.25 per week
- higher rate will be increased to £215.04 per week (this is only relevant for those people who were already on the higher rate in 2007 when the single band was introduced)
The new rate is being paid on an interim basis while further work is done to review the element of the rate for agency nursing staff (which could lead to a reduction to the rate from 1 January 2017) and to consult on introducing regional variation from April 2017. These rates are based on the best evidence currently available to the Department of Health.
