The article focuses on the concerns raised over the reform of the British National Health Service (NHS) involving a proposed shift away from the national pay bargaining system. Senior health officials contend that the local human resource (HR) departments are lacking in negotiation skills. Under the reform, individual employers will have the authority and power to decide on the salary of their own staff. According to Jon Restell of Managers in Partnership, local pay bargaining requires resources as well as skills.
