NHS must do ‘urgent work’ to address gender pay gap, says NHS Employers

Responding to Health Secretary Matt Hancock’s speech on the gender pay gap at the Royal College of Physicians annual conference, Danny Mortimer, chief executive of NHS Employers and NHS Confederation deputy chief executive, said:

“There is urgent work to be done to address the gender pay gap.
“Organisations in the NHS take seriously the need for them to address the underlying issues driving gender pay gaps across healthcare going forward. 
“In September 2015 NHS Employers and the NHS Confederation launched the Health & Care Women Leaders Network to support women working across health and care.
“The free network uses events, masterclasses and social media to share learning, celebrate skills and talents and connect colleagues to challenge gender stereotypes in the workplace and raise the number of women in senior positions in the NHS.”
