FOI, England (NHS ENGLAND), NHS Jobs

Dear Ildyko Ang,  

 

Thank you for your communication dated 28 December 2018.

 

NHS England has assessed your communication as a request under the Freedom
of Information (FOI) Act 2000. As such, your request is being dealt with
under the terms of the FOI Act, and has been allocated the following
reference number: FOI-058142.

 

Your exact request was:

 

“May I know what is the percentage of women in the NHS workforce, and if
there are any efforts to better that statistic? What about the percentage
of women of colour?

 

Are there staff diversity requirements, and penalties if these
requirements are not met?

 

May I know what are the pay scales for men and women in the NHS, and what
are the reasons for the differences in pay?”

 

We note that your request was addressed to NHS Jobs, but sent to NHS
England. As such, the information below relates to NHS England only.

 

NHS England holds some information in relation to your request.

 

As some of the information held is in the public domain, we will under
Section 21 of the FOI Act (information accessible to the applicant by
other means) refer you to the published source where necessary.

 

May I know what is the percentage of women in the NHS workforce?

 

The figure for the NHS England workforce is published in the [1]Annual
Report and Accounts. Please note this data relates only to NHS England
data and not the wider NHS.

 

Are there any efforts to better that statistic?

 

NHS England can confirm that there are currently no efforts to better that
statistic. This is because within NHS England women are not
underrepresented within our workforce when compared  to the number of
women in the wider population.

 

What about the percentage of women of colour?

 

As of 31 March 2018 15.0% of the female employees within NHS England were
BME.

 

Are there staff diversity requirements and penalties if these requirements
are not met?

 

NHS England does not have staff diversity requirements, and does not issue
penalties.

 

May I know what are the pay scales for men and women in the NHS, and what
are the reasons for the differences in pay?

 

There are no differences in pay scales for men and women in the NHS
including NHS England.

 

NHS England is required to publish, on an annual basis, details of the
organisations gender pay gap under the requirements of the Equality Act
2010 (Gender Pay Gap Regulations). [2]The NHS England Gender Pay Report
for 2017 uses snap shot data as of 1 March 2017.

 

There is an intention to publish the NHS England Gender Pay Report for
2018; however we are withholding this information under Section 22 of the
FOI Act which states that public bodies are not obliged to disclose
information that is intended for future publication.

 

Section 22 is a qualified exemption, and we are required to assess as
objectively as possible whether the balance of public interest favours
disclosing or withholding the information.

 

NHS England recognises that there is in general a strong public interest
in information being made as freely available as possible. However,
releasing information intended for publication ahead of its planned
publication date could lead to disruption of the communications plan and
put duplicated or inaccurate information within the public domain. This
would or is likely to be misleading to those viewing the information.

 

For these reasons, we believe withholding the information outweighs the
public interest in releasing the information. Equally, as this information
is to be published soon, we feel that it is best and reasonable to keep to
this timeframe rather than disclose earlier where error or duplication may
occur. On publication, this information will be freely available on the
[3]NHS England website for you to view.

 

As outlined above, the information provided above relates to NHS England
employees only. As such, you may wish to redirect your request to other
NHS organisations such as NHS Trusts and CCGs. You can find information on
how to contact other NHS organisations on the NHS website:

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:

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
