Dementia: Health Services

Volume 507: debated on Tuesday 16 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Health pursuant to the answer of 2 February 2010, Official Report, columns 224-25W, on dementia: drugs, what the salary is for the post of National Clinical Director for Dementia. (322271)

The application pack for the post, which is a secondment, made clear that the salary for 2.5 days a week would be between £75,383 and £95,333 (or equivalent to Agenda for Change band 9), and that secondees who fell outside this pay range would be expected to come across on their current salary.

It is not the practice of the Department to reveal personal salary details for its staff unless they are covered in the remuneration report of the annual resource accounts which covers staff at board level. In common with other Departments and agencies, the Department will shortly publish details on its website of staff earning over £150,000. In this case, the National Clinical Director for Dementia does not take up post until 1 April 2010 and his salary is yet to be determined.
