Stream 9: The gender pay gap

Mend the Gap

Following the 2016 junior doctors’ strike, the Independent Review into Gender Pay Gaps in Medicine was commission by then Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt. It published at the end of 2020. Data analysis using mixed methods resulted in the most comprehensive case study of a single occupation undertaken in the UK. In this presentation, two of the Review team will give an overview of the dimensions of the medical gender pay gap that have been quantitatively determined, setting out the main factors that sit behind it. Conclusions and recommendations to NHS management will have relevance to other occupational groups.

Speakers: Carol Woodhams, Professor in Human Resource Management, Surrey Business School and Mark Williams, Reader in Human Resource Management, Queen Mary University of London

It uses a mixed-method approach with two components: quantitative analysis from annual reports (previously mandatory) and original surveys on 400 organisations and qualitative analysis with expert interviews from 40 organisations.
