NHS Employers NHS equal pay toolkit

Extract from The Kings Fund: 9 August

The toolkit is designed to support employers by providing key information by pay bands which allows organisations to analyse their workforces in a number of different ways. It includes detailed guides on procedure, best practice examples and links to breakdowns of workforces within NHS organisations by age, disability, ethnicity, religion or belief, and sex or sexual orientation within pay bands.
