New mileage rates from 1 July 2014
How is mileage allowance calculated? Following the latest changes to the mileage allowance rates we have produced a poster that clearly presents the breakdown in costs and charges and compares 2013 to 2014 mileage rates. The new rates will apply to journeys made by NHS employees on and after 1 July 2014. The changes are also outlined in pay circular AfC 2/2014, and the terms and conditions handbook will be updated and republished shortly. You can access the poster, new pay circular, as well as a summary and FAQs on the changes, from our latest news page.
