Occupational Therapists’ Salaries

OT salaries vary depending on what field you work in, what level of experience you have and what type of responsibility you have and where in the UK you are.
The agenda for change, put in place in 2004 was introduced to harmonise pay and terms and conditions for all NHS workers other than doctors. This saw the end of the basic grade, senior 2, senior 1 type scale and brought in banding. It starts at band 5 for newly qualified OT and goes up. A result of this was that it brought into place even pay for physiotherapists and OT's.
