Your ESR

ESR is the foundation to meeting your strategic workforce agenda.  It exclusively offers the provision of an integrated hire to retire workforce management solution for NHS Organisations. ESR is as a business critical system; not only facilitating payroll for all NHS employees but also offering a wide range of other important workforce management tools.

With a proven track record for security and reliability the solution continues to provide NHS leaders and managers with a single source of the truth - providing you with the right workforce information that not only supports local workforce planning and management, but is also an enabler to meeting your efficiency and productivity challenges.

It’s the only system that is developed by the NHS for the NHS and the programme team provides first class resources - including experts at a local, regional and national level, at no additional cost to the NHS.

The range of functionality within the solution extends beyond core HR and Payroll.  Access to ESR via the internet gives both managers and employees the ability to carry out tasks without needing to be in the workplace.

The Portal is the new gateway into ESR for all NHS managers and employees.  Self Service functionality gives every ESR user the ability to manage their own data, or that of their teams.  With a range of portlets showing key workforce information, managers can see at a glance with helpful dashboards where actions need to be taken to manage their team, and maintain compliance around a range of workforce indicators including Absence and Compliance. 

The menu opposite provides you with details of the full range of ESR functionality, and outlines the key benefits for you as an individual or as an NHS manager.  More detail about the Portal can be found in the My ESR section of our website.
