Mileage rate rise for NHS car use

  • Comment
Interim mileage allowance increases for health service staff have been introduced this month.

Rates for staff travelling up to 9,000 miles per year in vehicles under 1,000cc will increase from 27p to 29.7p per mile, under the arrangements.

After 9,000 miles, the rate rises from 16.2p to 17.8p per mile. Nurses driving cars between 1,001cc and 1,500cc will receive 36.9p per mile for the first 9,000 miles and 20.1p thereafter. But those driving cars above 1,500cc receive the lower rate.

Health visitor Carolyn Taylor, chairperson of Unite’s nursing occupational advisory committee, said: ‘This is not enough. It is also unfairly penalising nurses who use their family cars.’
A full review of the mileage rates is likely to be delayed until after the budget.
