It is the largest review of gender pay gap in the public sector and involved interviews, online surveys and the examination of doctors' pay via ESR (electronic staff records) and HMRC returns. It was commissioned by Jeremy Hunt the then SoS for Health and Social Care in 2016 following the Junior doctors' contract dispute.

A steering group oversaw the review, chaired by Prof Jane Dacre, with representation from the BMA as a key stakeholder. Four years on, this is the output; the government has now also committed to the formation of an Implementation Panel moving forwards.

Professor Carol Woodhams the lead Researcher for the Review was invited to present at the Education, Training and Workforce policy group last month and I have attached her presentation for information.

The Education, Training and Workforce group discussed ways in which the gender pay gap in GP could be addressed, and there will be a series of webinars and work streams to help support this, including the recent GP parental leave guide and webinars.

The BMA and DHSC press relases are outlined here.
