Since April 2017, all employers with more than 250 staff are required to publish information about their gender pay gap.
The gender pay gap describes the difference between the average earnings of all the women in an organisation compared to the average earnings of all the men in that organisation. This is not the same as equal pay, which is about ensuring men and women doing the same or comparable jobs are paid the same.
We are required to publish the following:
- Gender pay gap (mean and median averages)
- Gender bonus gap (mean and median averages)
- Proportion of men and women receiving bonuses
- Proportion of men and women in each quartile of the organisation’s pay structure
In our organisation, the only bonuses that are awarded are to medical and dental staff through the Clinical Excellence Awards.
This data will be published annually.
