WORKFORCE: The five-PCT cluster identified 594 at-risk posts at the start of the management cost reduction programme and 105 people have now accepted voluntary redundancy.

A report to NHS Islington’s board said this left 489 people whose jobs were officially “at-risk” who could apply for 401 jobs across the new structure.

The report said: “The eventual number of compulsory redundancies is likely to differ from 88.  It may not be possible to fill all posts from the NCL at-risk pool due to mismatches of skills.

It adds: “On the other hand, some of the at risk staff may secure employment in other sectors or elsewhere within the NHS and therefore will not be eligible for redundancy. Our best estimate of the number of compulsory redundancies is therefore in the range 80 to 120.”   

A breakdown of the at-risk staff and the jobs in the proposed new structure showed there were roughly 300 staff at bands eight, nine and Very Senior Manager .

The new structure envisages 220 posts at these bands.

North central London comprises Islington, Barnet, Enfield, Haringey and Camden PCTs.
