Understanding your payslip

This short guide to understanding your payslip aims to clarify some of the entries on the consultant payslip in Scotland, and also highlights the areas that you may need to look at more carefully. Understanding what should be on your payslip is the first step to spotting any mistakes and avoiding any potential unwelcome surprises.

Simon Barker, chair of the BMA Scottish consultants committee, explains the different elements of pay that you might receive and how this will show up on your payslip.
