Information provided by the ESR Data Warehouse is a monthly snap shot of the live ESR system. ESR is the human resources and payroll system that is used by most NHS employers.
Organisations which do not use ESR include two trusts, Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, social enterprises that employ staff following a transfer from the NHS and general practices.
The data has not been annualised. It includes only those payments related to earnings. The ESR Data Warehouse does not record payments relating to expenses.
