Gender pay gap reporting

Sheffield Children's Hospital

Gender Pay Gap (GPG) legislation requires all employers of 250 or more employees to publish their gender pay gap as at 31 March each year.

In 2020 we have published our third Gender Pay Report for Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust. The data s always based on a snapshot date of 31 March for the previous year.

The information is sourced from the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) system, which holds our employee data. This information has also been submitted to the Government’s Gender Pay Gap reporting portal.

It must be noted that GPG is not the same as Equal Pay. The issues that GPG raises are important but different. The NHS has an equal pay system in place where pay for work of equal value is recognised.

As a Trust we are committed to addressing the issues arising from this report, while recognising that progress on this will also require wider changes in society.

What can we do as a Trust?

As a Trust we need to continue to:

  • Expand and utilise the Trust’s Gender Equality group to promote positive discussion and develop further awareness of the issues around the Gender Pay Gap, along with looking at representation, particularly at senior levels and junior levels within the Trust i.e. there needs to be a greater representation of women at senior pay levels and equally the Trust needs to attract more men into other roles.
  • Ensure training and development opportunities are accessible to all. Also look at targeting specific groups of people where the pay gap is seen as an issue to ensure that progress is based on merit not gender
  • Promote equality, diversity and inclusion more prominently to prospective applicants to show the Trust as an employer of choice
  • Contribute to a culture which enables women to progress and develop into more senior roles
  • Provide training and education to managers to address any issues related to unconscious bias
  • Specifically target female consultants to encourage them to apply for CEA awards and ensure a diverse representation on the decision making panel. The Trust as part of the new CEA arrangements will also be paying the full value of the CEA bonus payment to colleagues who work part time.
