unstar this property answer text <p>The number and value of clinical negligence payments made by the NHS Litigation Authority (NHS LA) as a result of negligence incurred by independent sector providers that are members of one of the NHS LA schemes, up to the 31 March 2014 is detailed in the following table:</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td> </td><td><p>Number of Claims with Payments</p></td><td><p>Damages</p><p>Paid</p></td><td><p>Defence Costs</p><p>Paid</p></td><td><p>Claimant Costs</p><p>Paid</p></td><td><p>Total Paid</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Private Sector</p></td><td><p>5</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>5,045</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>5,045</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>NHS Member</p></td><td><p>526</p></td><td><p>18,545,522</p></td><td><p>2,651,908</p></td><td><p>9,573,576</p></td><td><p>30,771,005</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Department of Health</p></td><td><p>188</p></td><td><p>10,783,424</p></td><td><p>1,073,613</p></td><td><p>3,673,581</p></td><td><p>15,530,617</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Total</p></td><td><p>719</p></td><td><p>29,328,945</p></td><td><p>3,730,565</p></td><td><p>13,247,157</p></td><td><p>46,306,667</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p>Independent sector providers of NHS services have only been eligible to join the NHS LA’s clinical negligence scheme for trusts since April 2013. The likelihood of a claim being incurred, reported and settled in the same financial year is very low, hence the low values in the table, but private sectors members now contribute directly to the scheme for their own liabilities.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In April 2013 arrangements were put in place so that sub-contractors would be covered by the NHS member of the scheme. This was to make the system less complex.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Since April 2013, claims arising from the activities of independent sector providers have historically been funded by the NHS member organisations that have contracted with them.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>An element of these claims has been inherited and funded by the Department as a result of the abolition of primary care trusts and strategic health authorities on 1 April 2013.</p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>

unstar this property answer text <p>The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) uses grading guidance as a tool to help managers and job holders determine the grading of a post. The guidance applies to all BIS staff, except the Senior Civil Service (SCS) and Fast Streamers, who have central grading structures.</p><p> </p><p>Job evaluation is used when the grading guidance alone is insufficient for the manager and job holder to determine the grade of a post. BIS uses a systematic job evaluation system called JEGS (Job Evaluation and Grading Support) for non-SCS staff and JESP (Job Evaluation for Senior Posts) for SCS staff. These have been developed specifically for the Civil Service. It is a systematic process for defining the relative worth or size of jobs in order to establish internal relativities.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The procedure for assessing grade boundaries using job evaluation are:</p><p> </p><p>1. Form a clear picture of the job</p><p> </p><p>2. Refer to grading guidance and where possible allocate to a grade</p><p> </p><p>3. If not, a trained evaluator will evaluate the post</p><p> </p><p>4. The evaluator’s conclusions are quality assured by an appropriate panel which includes trade union representatives</p><p> </p><p>5. HR will communicate the outcome to the line manager</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We do not keep records of how often the grading guidance are used or when job evaluations have taken place. Possible reasons for formal job evaluation might include:</p><p> </p><p>· the recruiting manager, Independent Panel Member (IPM) and Deputy Director cannot agree on the appropriate grade using the BIS grading guidance;</p><p> </p><p>· a new post has arisen and there are limited comparator posts within which to agree the grading;</p><p> </p><p>· a substantial and material change has been made to the weighting and responsibilities of the post;</p><p> </p><p>· an area has been restructured and the boundaries for responsibility and weighting have changed significantly;</p><p> </p><p>· there is sufficient doubt of grading when similar roles are compared across the Department; or</p><p> </p><p>· the Department is undergoing a full grading review.</p>
