(1) Benefits in kind were in relation to the provision of cars and are stated in round £100s not £1000s. Notes: 1. In October 2005 the National Blood Service and.UK Transplant merged to create NHS Blood and Transplant. The two organisational structures merged and the initial changes were completed in 2006-07. Further changes to Director posts have been made in later financial years as a result of further reconfiguration to support delivery of the strategic plan. 2. Significant salary changes between years can be explained by a new appointment to a post previously filled by an individual with many years' service, non-recurrent costs of one-off settlements (such as redundancy) and additional running costs when two salaries were being paid to cover sickness or during the process of reconfiguration.
