Answered on

26 October 2017

Salaries of Director level posts in NHS Property Services (NHSPS) are set by NHSPS’ Remuneration Committee and established through external market benchmarking, which references the current NHS Senior Executive pay scales. Consideration is also given by the Remuneration Committee to the rates prevailing in the market for the post, as well as consideration of salaries in the public sector and other terms of the contracts.

Director’s bonuses are tied to the delivery of challenging efficiency and improvement targets set by the Department. The Company’s proposals on Directors’ remuneration, including bonuses, are presented and considered at its Remuneration Committee, which includes the Shareholder Director, who is a Senior Civil Servant acting on behalf of the Secretary of State.
