The gender pay gap legislation introduced in April 2017 requires that UK employers with 250 employees or more publish data about their gender pay gap using six different measures.
To meet the legal requirements of gender pay gap reporting both organisations will publish their data as separate entities.
The figures must be calculated using a specific reference date – this is called the ‘snapshot date’. The
snapshot date each year is:
- 31 March for public sector organisations (Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust)
- 5 April for businesses/private organisations (QE Facilities Limited)
This report provides the group position in relation to gender pay gap reporting as at the ‘snapshot date’ of 31 March 2018.
All data has been produced using the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) system. This is a national NHS tool for generating gender pay gap information and by default takes into account a large number of NHS pay and bonus pay elements when generating reports.
