Proposed Transfer of North Mersey NHS Payroll and Transactional HR Services to Capita(July 28, 2011)
Capita was recently selected as the preferred provider for the North Mersey NHS Payroll and Transactional Human Resources Services. This is a 7 year contract worth £27 million which covers all twelve NHS Trusts in the North Mersey area.
The next step in the process is for each Trust to have the proposed transfer formally approved by their respective Trust Board. Steve Rotheram MP is asking that before Trust Boards make a final decision they ensure they enter into a full consultation and receive the full staffing implications from Capita.
Steve said, “There are some 140 staff who will be affected by this proposal, they are doing vital back office work in the NHS and I do not want to see a large number of redundancies, paid for by the Trusts as a result of this transfer. This is not value for money.
I am calling on all the North Mersey Trust Boards to push Capita for the full staffing implications of this transfer. The Southport and Ormskirk NHS Trust have already rejected the proposals as they will not save any money”.
