Public Sector Rich List NHS coverage

November 10, 2015 1:00 PM

In the second instalment of our Public Sector Rich List, today we lead with the revelation that at least 50,000 employees of NHS organisations and General Practitioners received total remuneration in excess of £100,000 in 2013-14. Compiled in an easy-to-search spreadsheet, we tell you what middle managers, chief executives, practitioners and other staff up and down the country went home with last year.

We can today reveal that over 37,000 employees of NHS trusts and Clinical Commissioning Groups hit the six figure remuneration bracket, not including the 10,375 General Medical Practitioners in England and Wales, the 1,764 General Dental Practitioners, the 40 employees of ambulance trusts and, of course, the 534 employees of NHS quangos.

Shockingly, 1,757 of the 50,000 received more than £200,000, 203 more than £300,000, 60 more than £400,000 and 8 more than £500,000 – all from the public purse.

You can read more on this by picking up today’s Daily Mail, or by reading the write-up on the Daily Mirror. For coverage of the figures in your region, check your local news outlet.
