Travel Expenses Update

In October 2022 mileage rates at BTH were temporarily increased from the national Agenda for Change rate of 56p per mile to a local rate of 61p per mile. This was part of an agreement across the NHS in Lancashire and South Cumbria in response to the significant increase in fuel costs and was set to be in place until such a time that national mileage rates were reviewed and/or fuel costs reduced.

The national Agenda for Change mileage rates have now been reviewed and were increased from 56p per mile to 59p per mile. These Agenda for Change rates came into effect and were applied in some organisations from 01st January 2023.

The national rate will be applied at BTH from 01st August 2023

More information about Agenda for Change mileage rates and claimable expenses can be found here in Part 2, Section 17
