Circular
TRAINEE FORENSIC
PSYCHOLOGISTS - PAY

REFERENCE NO:
35/2005

PURPOSE
To notify revised pay scales applicable to Basic Grade Trainee Forensic
Psychologists with effect from 1 July 2004.

ACTION
Chief Officers should ensure that the revised pay rates are implemented as
appropriate.

SUMMARY
Please find attached revised pay scales for basic grade Psychologists
effective from 1 July 2004. Appendix A relates to staff in post prior to 1
January 2004; Appendix B to staff appointed on or after 1 January 2004.
The revised scales represent a 1.5% revalorisation of the pay spine.
It should be noted that the NPS common incremental date of 1 April applies
in respect of these staff (six steps on the spine represent one increment).
This PC should have been distributed at the beginning of this year.
Unfortunately, it was not registered in the first instance and therefore we
have found it necessary to redistribute it in order to rectify this situation.
Apologises for any inconvenience this delay has caused.
