3. Methodology

The Management (non AfC) figure published as part of the ISD National Statistics release includes staff on senior manager and executive pay grades. However, some of these posts may be clinically orientated or involve support of frontline services. Further, some NHS Boards have a number of posts on AfC that other NHS Boards have within their executive or senior manager grades. In order to make the national target more consistent, NHS Boards were given the opportunity to exclude clinical staff, but include administrative posts on AfC Band 8a and above that they would class as part of the their senior managers. The guidance issued to NHS Boards regarding the criteria for meeting the national target was issued on 6 December 2010 and placed in the Scottish Parliament's Reference Centre (Bib number 52181).
