Basic Pay And Pay Thresholds
On commencement, the value of basic salary - and of payments for any additional Programmed Activities - will normally be the first of the thresholds set out in Table 1.
Table 1: Pay Thresholds
London Allowance : £2162
|Threshold||Years completed as a consultant||Basic salary at April 2016 rates||Basic salary at April 2017 rates||Period before eligibility for next threshold|
Clinical Academic (Honorary Consultant) and Clinical Academic Public Health (Honorary Consultant)'s will become eligible for pay thresholds at the intervals set out in Table 1 above.
The value of pay thresholds for a part-time Clinical Academic (Honorary Consultant) or Clinical Academic Public Health (Honorary Consultant) will be pro-rata to the levels in Table 1, based on the number of agreed weekly Programmed Activities in the Clinical Academic (Honorary Consultant) or Clinical Academic Public Health (Honorary Consultant)'s Integrated Job Plan as a proportion of the ten minimum required Programmed Activities for a full-time appointment at Clinical Academic (Honorary Consultant) or Clinical Academic Public Health (Honorary Consultant) level.
Threshold progression will be dependent upon the annual review and submission of a signed job plan, agreeing duties and responsibilities, to cover a 12-month period from the anniversary date of the clinical academics transfer to the terms of the new contract.

The value of an Additional Programmed Activity (APA) is 10% of basic salary.
Where a local Clinical Excellence Award or Discretionary Points are held, the value of an APA is increased by 10% of the value of the Clinical Excellence Award or Discretionary Points received.
