NHS organisations provide some of the most comprehensive and attractive employment packages available in the UK. They have flexibility in the application of the national frameworks and an increasing degree of local flexibility to vary terms and approaches. By adopting a clearly defined total reward approach organisations can celebrate their diversity and distinguish themselves in a competitive employment market. 

NHS Employers provides support and guidance through the reward strategy toolkit to help employers develop, implement and communicate a locally focused and effective total reward approach.
