North Merseyside NHS trusts sign new HR and payroll services contract

Ten NHS trusts in North Merseyside have signed a new contract with Capita for the delivery of transactional HR and payroll services.

The new seven-year agreement will also enable other trusts from the north west of England to procure these services from Capita.

Raj Jain, chief executive of Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital, who has been leading the project on behalf of the other trusts, said: “Trusts currently have different arrangements in place for delivering transactional HR and payroll, so the savings for each organisation will vary, but we know that by using our collective buying power we can generate real benefits.

“We have identified potential savings of around 17% across the local NHS as a whole; that means hundreds of thousands of pounds which could be focused on patient care rather than administrative processes.”
