This also avoids overpayments which are at the lowest level for 2 years. The portal also provides managers with information on staff sickness, allowances, staff working high numbers of hours, a quick and easy way to terminate sessional who are not working . 352 managers are registered to use the portal. The portal will be further developed to provide e-forms. OHFT Payroll mailbox All payroll forms are now scanned to payroll who now undertake all transactional input.. This has resulted in more timely receipt of forms, avoidance of double handling or loss of forms and a reduction in the cost of HR.

Casework Data The report relates to open Casework only and excludes Cases of Capability (Performance &Health). During January there have been 40 open cases . Themes, trends and precedents are reviewed regularly and currently work is being undertaken to review the casework of other Trust’s to compare our trends. The number of suspensions since the last report has reduced and the current breakdown of suspensions by service is as follows: • Specialised Services- 2 • A/OA Mental Health – 2 • Community Services -2 A robust process for management of suspensions means the average length of suspensions has reduced considerably. There is a focus on returning staff to the workplace as soon as practicable. The graph here shows the number of Whistle blowing cases raised during 2013. This can be viewed as positive in that staff feel able to raise them and have a safe process through which to do this. Adult Mental Health remains the division with the highest number of Whistle blowing‘ cases. A further review of Whistle blowing is being undertaken to compare incidence of cases against other Trusts.
