1 The accounts and summarisation forms do not distinguish between medical and non-medical staff in health authorities and special health authorities. The figures in the Table therefore include some medical staff who are not managers. The figures also include medical directors in NHS Trusts.
2 NHS locally published accounts now give individual details of earning and names of senior staff and directors in accordance with the Greenbury Code. This level of detail is not collected centrally so comparable figures are not available for 2001–02 onwards.
3 Figures for staff in health authorities in 2000–01 are not yet available as they are not disclosed in the accounts or summarisation schedules. Banding: Staff remuneration is not itemised in bands of less than £40,000 to £50,000
