NHS Employers backs 2% rise for very senior managers

NHS Employers has recommended a 2% pay award for very senior managers in 2009/10 in evidence to the Senior Salaries Review Body (SSRB).

The evidence reflects concerns that the current framework presents a barrier to high-level recruitment which is incompatible with the drive to achieve world-class commissioning.

Gill Bellord, director of pay, pensions and employment relations at NHS Employers, said: ‘The national pay framework is making it more difficult for them to recruit the top-level managers that the NHS needs to lead it through the next stage of its development as set out in initiatives like world-class commissioning and the Next Stage Review.'

NHS Employers also argues that non-GMS GPs should receive a 2% uplift in 2009/10 and the 8% three-year deal for nurses agreed this year should not be re-opened in the light of the rising cost of living.
