Dear SMITH, Sue (HERTFORDSHIRE PARTNERSHIP UNIVERSITY NHS FOUNDATION TRUST),

Many thanks for your response. Please could you confirm if you outsource your payroll to East and North Herts NHS Trust for all of substantive, bank and temporary workers? Additionally what was the annual cost of outsourcing this service in 19/20 and contract start and end dates with the supplier?

Yours sincerely,
Michael

Yes Michael all our payroll is outsourced.

 

Do you wish to submit an additional FOI?

 

Alternatively you could look at our [1]disclosure log, under  Information
Management and Technology where you may find the information you require;
FOI 2758 may be of some help.

 

Best wishes

 

Sue Smith
