Summary of the table's contents

The value of an Additional Programmed Activity (APA) is 10% of basic salary plus 10% of any CEA award up to level 9. Where an honorary consultant holds discretionary points or a local CEA above the level 9 discretionary point, the APA is capped at level 9 / Bronze level (£36,192 at April 2017 rate). Payment for an APA is therefore based on 10% basic salary plus a maximum amount of 10% of £36,192.

London Weighting of £2,162 per annum is payable in addition to all full-time staff working at sites bases in London. Part-time staff will receive the allowance on a pro-rata basis
