PCT managers face pay cuts for missing targets

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

The salary framework for ‘very senior managers’ in the NHS, will provide an annual uplift plus a performance bonus and other appropriate 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.

PCT chief executives will be paid between £100,000 and £142,000, across five bands dependent on the size of their resident population, weighted for age and deprivation.

SHA chief executives will be paid between £151, 000 and £191,000, across four bands, weighted for similar factors.

Directors of PCTs and SHAs will be paid between 55 per cent and 75 per cent of the chief executive’s salary.
