Managers must hit targets to earn pay increase

Senior PCT managers will see their salaries reduced if they fail to meet DoH financial targets, under a performance system unveiled last week.

The salary framework will provide an annual uplift plus a performance bonus and other rewards, for chief executives and directors of SHAs and PCTs.

But if their organisations fail to hit the financial control targets set by the DoH, the whole senior management team will lose all bonuses and the annual uplift - amounting to a pay cut in real terms.

The exact value of the uplift will depend on the Review Body.

PCT chief executives will be paid between £100,000 and £142,000, dependent on the size of their population, weighted for age and deprivation. SHA chief executives will be paid between £151,000 and £191,000.
