Difference in cost of consultants in 2013 and 2014 (FOI)

Difference in cost of consultants in 2013 and 2014 (FOI)

Produced by the Freedom of Information office
Authored by States of Jersey and published on 06 July 2015.
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.
