What we are doing to address the Gender Pay Gap

  • Our recruitment policy is and has always been to recruit the right person for the job regardless of gender, race and ethnicity.
  • We continue to benchmark salaries and bonus to ensure equal and fair pay for the role they are recruited to do.
  • We have a talent strategy which focuses on performance and potential regardless of gender, race and ethnicity.
  • We support all colleagues by developing and promoting an inclusive culture through excellent recognition schemes and employee involvement programmes.
  • We support requests for flexible working and have a good mix of full time and part time colleagues.

These statistics demonstrate that we employ more women than men across the division; this is general in the healthcare sector. The data presented confirms that we are paying people fairly based on their skills and qualifications. Our recruitment process ensures that it remains fair, inclusive and impartial.

I confirm the data reported is accurate.
