Dear Karen Greenacre,

Many thanks for your response. Please could you clarify which worker types (substantive, bank, temporary) ESR is used to pay? Are any other suppliers used to pay any of your staff?

Additionally, as you outsource you payroll to Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust, what was the annual cost of this service in 19/20 and the contract start and end dates?

Yours sincerely,

Michael

Karen Greenacre, North East Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust
