The primary source of national health service earnings data is published by the Health and Social Care Information Centre. Data on average basic pay per full-time equivalent is taken from this publication. This is based on Electronic Staff Record data which is only available from 2008-09 onwards so the data series cannot be extended into early years. Data relating to York relates to the former North Yorkshire and York Primary Care Trust and York Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust. For reference a comparison of basic pay per headcount, which has not specifically been requested, is provided.
