Payscales

The rates of pay, allowances and other pay-related conditions for HSE employees are as approved by the Department of Health. These pay rates are referred to as the Consolidated Payscales. The Department of Health issue new payscales to reflect changes as they arise.

The payscales set out the rates of pay for each grade and include incremental progression where applicable. Most HSE salaries are incremental and the number of increments is determined by the particular grade of the employee.
