PCTs facing voluntary redundancy costs

15th March 2012

HSJ analysis of Department of Health data has revealed that two thirds of the cost of paying off primary care trust managers to make early financial savings went on allowing them to retire early or volunteer to leave the NHS.

In 2010-11, some £169m was spent on all PCT redundancies and early retirements. Of this, £60m went on compulsory redundancies and £109m on voluntary redundancies and early retirements, excluding those relating to ill-health. The figures also include how much each PCT spent on “exit packages” in 2010-11.
