star this property answer text <p>The NHS Agenda for Change national pay system is supported by a nationally agreed Job Evaluation Scheme and is managed locally by National Health Service organisations. NHS Employers (the representative body for NHS employers) provide guidance to NHS organisations and undertake training delivered by experienced job evaluation experts. There is also nationally agreed guidance in the NHS Terms and Conditions Handbook with advice on job evaluation as part of workforce re-profiling.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>NHS organisations are responsible for ensuring that job roles meet their obligations under Equal Pay legislation which require that staff should receive equal pay for work of equal value. Any difference must be objectively justified.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>There may be job roles across NHS organisations with the same job title but which include different content and carry different demands. In these cases, the Job Evaluation Scheme is designed to ensure organisations deliver similar outcomes provided similar jobs are being compared. The scheme will also help organisations ensure that the pay band accurately reflect the skills and responsibilities of the job.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Agenda for Change pay system is a national collective agreement managed in partnership between National Health Service trade unions and NHS Employers (the representative organisation for NHS employers). Any changes are currently agreed in partnership via national collective bargaining.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The underlying banding structure within Agenda for Change, supported by job evaluation provides for equal pay for work of equal value and is sound.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>However, the Government does wish to see further changes to Agenda for Change; including structural reform so that there is a much stronger link to performance and that the highest pay within any band is received by those staff who make the greatest contribution.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Agenda for Change also needs to be fairer across all pay bands, rather than currently where higher paid staff receive higher progression. We have urged NHS trade unions to work with NHS Employers on longer term reform of Agenda for Change to ensure it is fairer and financially sustainable.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star 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>
