Junior Doctor Pay Calculator

We’ve created a junior doctor pay calculator to help you better understand your salary, tax, student loans and NHS pensions. We’ve based it on the Junior Doctor Contract in England updated for April 2022/23 financial year and pay circulars.

Based on this it uses the following nodal points for basic salary calculations:

  • FY1 – £29,384
  • FY2 – £34,012
  • Specialty Registrar/Core Training 1/2 (SHO) – £40,257
  • ST3/4/5 – £51,017
  • ST6/7/8 – £58,398

As many external factors impact your pay and tax, our calculator won’t be 100% accurate and shouldn’t be used to make any financial decisions.

  1. This is generally really good.

    A few things that could be added
    – flexible Pay premia for hard to fill specialties
    – Different plans for student loans, I’m on plan 4 but work in England.

  2. FYI i could be wrong but i think the monthly contribution to an NHS pension is not taxable income.

    I.e. if you are paying into a pension scheme this calculator will overestimate the amount of income tax you are paying and underestimate your take home pay,
