NHS Staff Earnings Estimates, September 2023, Provisional Statistics


Summary

This report shows average annual earnings for the following four earnings measures, provisionally showing overall figures for the NHS HCHS workforce (excluding primary care staff) in England in NHS Trusts and other core organisations in England and NHS Support Organisations and Central Bodies.

Mean annual basic pay per FTE – is the mean amount of basic pay paid per 1 full-time equivalent post in a 12-month period.

Mean annual earnings per person – is the mean amount paid to an individual in a 12-month period, regardless of the contracted FTE.

Mean annual basic pay per person – is the mean amount of basic pay paid to an individual in a 12-month period, regardless of the contracted FTE.

Mean annual non-basic pay per person – is the mean amount, over and above basic pay, paid to an individual in a 12 month period, regardless of the contracted FTE (this is further split into ten separate measures – see Appendix A for a list and descriptions)

These figures are based on the most recent twelve months of data and are presented by staff group in the publication (Tables 1 & 2). This publication also includes tables which examine the non-basic pay elements in greater details (Table 3). Data are available every month from 30 September 2009 onwards.

We have created a repository of the code used to produce the NHS Staff Earnings publication which is available on GitHub via the Related Links section below.

Following the introduction of the Reproducible Analytical Pipeline (RAP) process, improvements have been made to the calculation of earnings for Professionally Qualified Clinical Staff. Also, a change previously introduced to Basic Pay Per Full Time Equivalent (BPPFTE) in December 2018 has been extended to all prior dates. Data back to September 2009 have been revised. Therefore users are encouraged to use the latest published data.

Monthly NHS Workforce Statistics and monthly NHS Staff Sickness Absence reports and data relating to the General Practice workforce and the Independent Healthcare Provider workforce are also available via the Related Links below.

We welcome feedback on the methodology and tables within this publication. Please email us with your comments and suggestions, clearly stating Monthly HCHS Workforce as the subject heading, via [email protected] or 0300 303 5678.
