Department of Health plans new NHS electronic staff record system


ESR – an integrated HR and payroll management system

The Department of Health (DH) has issued a pre-tender for a contract to provide the NHS with a new electronic staff record system (ESR), along with pension scheme administration services, based on a study that says that ESR should be retained

The ESR system, used in all NHS organisations, is an integrated recruitment, HR, payroll and learning management system. The current contract for its provision will come to an end on 31st August, 2014.

The DH plans to hold a supplier conference on 18th September where interested suppliers can understand the emerging plans regarding these services. It will also act as a forum to provide feedback on the current system, which may be used to refine the proposition before formal procurement begins.
