Are doctors getting an above-inflation pay rise?

13th October 2023 / NewsBits
  • Whether this is correct depends on which doctors are included and which measurement of inflation is used.
  • The pay award for junior doctors of between 8.1% and 10.3% is higher than April‘s CPIH inflation rate of 7.8%.
  • But this is lower than the RPI inflation rate of 11.4% that month.
  • Meanwhile, consultants received a 6% pay rise, which is below both RPI and CPIH.
