Online Payslips using ESR

Supporting Digital Workforce Transformation

Digital technology touches many parts of our lives, from keeping in touch with our friends using social media, booking a taxi through an App or managing our banking online, we all frequently interact with technology.

More than 2.3 million employees across England and Wales now access their payslip online, equating to nearly 95% of the NHS. 

During October 2023 circa 19,238 employees that received a paper payslip also viewed the online version. That's 19,238 paper payslips that need not have been printed across the NHS.

Between January and December 2023 over 110,000 employees switched to online payslips in ESR, however in December 2023 96,000 employees received paper payslips across the NHS, the majority of which will be filed away until they are needed for proof of earnings, and yet online payslips are available via the Electronic Staff Record solution to all NHS employees with an ESR record.

Many organisations make their latest payslip available before payday, at a time to suit them, and all employees that use Self Service can receive an automatic notification from ESR when their latest payslip is available to view and download.
