Surge in salaries for top earners in NHS

Chief executives of NHS trusts now have a median salary of £119,235, while those in Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) are paid a median salary of £106,012, according to new research.

The latest NHS Salary Club Survey Reports published by HR support service NHS Partners reveals that the median salaries for chief executives in trusts are 5% higher than last year and for PCTs 3.5% higher.

Finance chiefs generally remain the next highest paid directors in the health service (excluding medical directors), with median salaries of £88,939 in trusts and £81,552 in PCTs.

Less than a quarter of chief executives and 20% of board post holders in the survey receive performance-related pay, but nearly three-quarters of NHS organisations have a car lease or contract hire scheme for directors or managers who are regular car users.
