Salaries of directors are published in annual reports in paybands. NHS England provides pay guidance for very senior managers at foundation trusts, which is available at the following link:
Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust is classified as a ‘supra large acute’ provider and foundation trusts hold statutory power over remuneration. The salary band for the Chair of Mid and South Essex Integrated Care Board is £60,000 to £65,000 for a 2.5 to three day working week. The salary band for the Chief Executive of Mid and South Essex Integrated Care Board is £190,000 to £212,500. Pay in excess of these levels would require Ministerial approval.
It is imperative that all parts of the National Health Service exercise good judgement and concern for taxpayer value in determining executive pay.
