NHS revamps payroll systems

The body responsible for NHS payroll, finance and accounting services is turning to third-party providers to improve payroll data delivery.

NHS

The organisation responsible for providing payroll and other accounting functions for the National Health Service (NHS) has signed a new strategic third-party payroll deal.

NHS Shared Business Services will work with existing managed services provider Steria, to implement workforce optimisation and electronic rostering systems from Manpower Software, to deliver efficient and improved payroll data to NHS organisations.

The alliance has been designed to help NHS organisations save money through reduced administration, more accurate payroll data and automatic entry of data into the NHS' Electronic Staff Record (ESR) system.

"NHS Shared Business Services has given the NHS the freedom to concentrate on its core function of providing local people with high quality clinical care. Our partnership with Manpower Software will drive forward our strategy in providing an increasing range of software applications that have been hand-picked to deliver faster, streamlined and more cost efficient processing right across the NHS," said Jim Vincent, managing director of NHS Shared Business Services.

Over 100 NHS organisations use NHS Shared Business Services to provide outsourced payroll services.

Paul Scandrett, Manpower Software's director of Healthcare added that the electronic recording of staff payment enhancements from their completed duties would reduce the administration burden currently facing NHS organisations.
