Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust Group provides a range of health and facility management services within the North East of England.
The group incorporates QE Facilities Ltd (QEF) which is a wholly owned subsidiary company of Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust.
This report should be read in conjunction with the separate reports of Gateshead Health NHS Foundation Trust and QE Facilities Limited which are available upon their respective websites in line with the Gender Pay Gap legislation.
Gender Pay Gap reporting requirements
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 2019.
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.
