FOITEAMCRMMAILBOX (NHS ENGLAND & NHS IMPROVEMENT - X24), NHS England

Dear KG Donovan,  

Thank you for your Freedom of Information (FOI) request dated 19 May 2022.

Your exact request was:

“Please provide full details of the salaries and benefits of:

1. the chief officers of the 42 English 'integrated care systems'; and of
2. the chief officers of the 'places' within each of those systems.”

NHS England (NHSE) holds some information in relation to your request.

For question 1, NHSE holds some of this information related to salaries.
However, we are withholding this information under section 40(2) of the
FOI Act.

Information is exempt under section 40(2) where that information
constitutes personal data (other than that of the requester) and one of
the conditions set out in section 40(3) is satisfied. Under the FOI Act,
disclosure of this information would contravene data protection principle
(a) relating to fair use. Section 40(2) is an absolute exemption and
therefore not subject to the public interest test when considering
disclosure of information.

However, you may find the following useful:
The salary ranges for the 42 Integrated Care Board (ICB) CEO roles were
advertised publicly on the individual job microsites. Each microsite
advertised the salary according to the banding for each role (the pay
bandings were based on weighted population that each role served).

Therefore, the salaries advertised were as follows:

• Roles that fell under Pay Band A (population of under 1 million) were
advertised as “up to £197,500 depending on experience”
• Roles that fell under Pay Band B (population of 1-1.5m) were
advertised as “up to £212,500 depending on experience”
• Roles that fell under Pay Band C (population of 1.5-2m) were
advertised as “up to £240,000 depending on experience”
• Roles that fell under Pay Band D (population of over 2m) were
advertised as “up to £270,000 depending on experience”

For question 2, NHSE does not hold this information. NHSE did not collect
the salaries for the Place based Chief Officers due to not having any
remit over these appointments. This information may be held by the
individual ICBs, and as such you may wish to contact them directly. A list
of ICBs can be found on our [1]website, and their contact details will be
published on their individual webpages.

We hope this information is helpful. However, if you are dissatisfied, you
have the right to ask for an internal review. This should be requested in
writing within two months of the date of this letter. Your correspondence
should be labelled “Internal Review” and should outline your concerns
and/or the area(s) you would like the review to consider. Internal Review
requests should be sent to:

NHS England
PO Box 16738
REDDITCH
B97 9PT

Email: [2][NHS England request email]

Please quote the reference number FOI-2205-1760977 in any future
communications.

If you are not content with the outcome of the internal review, you have
the right to apply directly to the Information Commissioner for a
decision. The Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) can be contacted at
the following weblink:
 
[3]https://ico.org.uk/global/contact-us/

Please note there is no charge for making an appeal.

Please be aware that in line with the Information Commissioner’s directive
on the disclosure of information under the FOI Act, your request will be
anonymised and published on our website as part of our disclosure log.

Please do not reply to this email. This message has been sent from a
central mailbox. To communicate with NHS England regarding Freedom of
Information (FOI) requests, enquiries or complaints we ask these are sent
directly to NHS England’s customer contact centre. This is to ensure all
communications are progressed correctly. Their postal address, telephone
number and email details are as follows: PO Box 16738, Redditch, B97 9PT;
