The service is provided by McKesson UK under a contract with the Department of Health (DH) which expires in August 2014. . The NHS ESR Reprocurement Project has been established to replace this expiring contract ensuring that there is no break in the ability of the NHS to pay and manage its employees and to ensure that the service is enhanced and improved to meet the future needs of the NHS The project will ensure the ongoing provision of pay services to the NHS and that these services are provided in the most effective and efficient way following the expiry of current contracts. Aims • ensuring that NHS organisations continue to have access to efficient, effective and sustainable solutions to undertake at least the core services currently provided by ESR, including ensuring the continuity of service for NHS staff in relation to their remuneration. • ensuring that the organisations continue to achieve the benefits from the current service, documented in the OGC benefits report in 2008 and drive additional benefits from any further investment. • enabling DH, Ministers, Health Education England and Local Education and Training Boards (LETBs) and other bodies to have timely and accurate macro level data about the NHS workforce such as numbers, profile and skills. • providing assurance data to the reformed system that a trained workforce is in place to enable supply side management of appropriately trained and skilled health and care workforce.
