Gender Pay Gap Analysis 2017

 All employers with more than 250 staff are now 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.

The required information for publication is:-

  • the  % difference between the mean hourly rate of pay of male employees and that of female employees;
  • the % difference between the median hourly rate of pay of male employees and that of female employees;
  • the % difference between the mean bonus pay paid to male employees and that paid to female employees;
  • the % difference between the median bonus pay paid to male employees and that paid to female employees
  • the proportions of male and female employees who were paid bonus pay; and
  • the proportions of male and female employees in the lower, lower middle, upper middle and upper quartile pay bands.

In our organisation, ‘bonus pay’ relates to Clinical Excellence Awards which are performance-based awards that apply to consultant level medical and dental staff,. As a healthcare provider, a high proportion of our workforce is female. We are committed to ensuring we take an inclusive approach in the recruitment and career development of our staff.

The Trust’s gender pay information is published on the Government website and you can view our overview here (link to infographic here)

Learning from Deaths Policy

 For many people death under the care of the North Cumbria University Hospital is an inevitable outcome and they experience excellent care from in the months or years leading up to their death. However some patients experience poor quality provision resulting from multiple contributory factors, which often include poor leadership and system-wide failures. Staff work tirelessly under increasing pressures to deliver safe, high-quality healthcare. When mistakes happen, providers working with their partners need to do more to understand the causes.

The purpose of reviews and investigations of deaths which problems in care might have contributed to is to learn in order to prevent recurrence. Reviews and investigations are only useful for learning purposes if their findings are shared and acted upon including cross cutting themes.
