Our People Promise makes clear that all our staff are fairly rewarded and recognised. We will work with trusts to support them to make the very best use of the NHS employment offer, pay and non-pay, which provide a range of benefits that go well beyond the statutory minimum and which provide access to a competitive pension scheme, including important Life Assurance, personal and other family benefits.
