The proposals outlined in the Health and Social Care Bill would require that Monitor and the National Health Service Commissioning Board must obtain the Secretary of State's approval to its policies on remuneration, payment of pensions and other allowances for employees.

The Bill also proposes that each commissioning consortium is to be a corporate body which may appoint employees on such terms and conditions (including remuneration) as it determines. The National Health Service Commissioning Board may publish guidance for consortia on the determination of remuneration for employees. Consortia would also be required to publish prescribed information in relation to the remuneration of their employees.
