Report Axed Nhs Executives Get Salary Protection For 10 Years in House prices and the economy Posted August 2, 2010 · Edited August 2, 2010 by Selling up I have a couple of friends working for East Lancashire PCT. One (senior manager) has been made redundant and the other is probably about to. I was commiserating with them when the ex-senior manager revealed that their pay was protected for 5 years. So as of today the ex-senior manager is doing nothing while drawing her salary. The PCT will now try to find a more junior post for her to fill, at the same salary she was earning previously. It makes the GP contract look positively sensible! Edit: So it isn't only in Wales!
