This information is not collected centrally.

There are nationally agreed rates for the remuneration of board members of the 10 strategic health authorities. The authorities’ boards are made up of non-executive board members, who receive remuneration at set rates agreed by the Department, and executive members who are paid under the Department’s Pay Framework for Very Senior Managers.

The Pay Framework for Very Senior Managers also applies to the executive board members of special health authorities, primary care trusts and ambulance trusts, issued by the Department. A copy has been placed in the Library.
