Prepared internally, no external costs.
Total wage bill of consultants in 2014 is £9,170,456 up from £8,428,319 in 2013 yet the number of consultants have remained the same and the long term locums has fallen by 1. Can you tell me why it’s risen by £600k?
Also total wage bill in 2014 is up by £1million to £18,769,253 if locums/consultant figures have remained constant where has the extra wage bill come from? Have you employed a new department/had a recruitment drive/increased wages significantly or something?
Some consultants have been given extra remuneration for clinical work cover. This cover is recognised as a necessary requirement, and is in accordance with Royal College/insurance recommendations. A further cause was internal locum payments to provide cover for leave, sick leave.
The total wage bill has not increased by £1 million. The true figure is £742,137.
