Between April 2011 and March 2012, the number of staff in Buckinghamshire Primary Care Trust and Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHS Trust paid over:

(a) £50,000 was 488;

(b) £65,738 was 318; and

(c) £100,000 was 147.

These estimates include staff that would fall into more than one of the categories, ie staff in category (b) are also included in category (a).

Validated earnings information is not held centrally for national health service staff. These estimates are based on unvalidated data as recorded in the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) Data Warehouse.

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.
