Changes to the way you are paid

Changes to the way you are paid

From 1 April 2020 you will notice some changes to the way you are paid as an employee of BSW ICB.

BaNES, Swindon and Wiltshire ICBs are merging on 1 April 2020. There will be changes to the way you are paid and how you access your pay and pension information.

Changes to payment of salaries, which apply to all colleagues:

  • Salaries will be paid on the 23 of each month. The first pay date for BSW ICB colleagues will be 23 April 2020.
  • Salaries will be paid via ‘BSW-Monthly by Salisbury payroll’. This is what you will see on your bank statement.

Currently each ICB pays its colleagues on a different date from its own payroll. Under the new organisation all colleagues will be paid on the same day, via the same payroll.

You will continue to access your pay and pension information via ESR. Up until 31 March 2020 you will be able to access your complete historical information.

From 1 April 2020 you will only see information for the year 2019/20 and you should download or print any historical payslips, P60s, pension statements or other historical information that you may require.

You will not be able to recover this information from ESR after 1 April 2020.

If you have any queries regarding ESR, contact HR Support and Advice: 0300 123 6220 or email

We’ve answered some of the immediate questions that you may have, see below. If you have a question about the changes outlined, which is not captured in the Q&As, please contact

Q1. Do I need to take any action regarding the change of pay date?
No, as long as your bank details don’t change you don’t need do anything. Your salary will be paid as usual, but on the 23 of each month.

Q2. Why has the pay date changed?
Currently each ICB has a different pay date: 

 Organisation Current pay date
 BaNES ICB24th of each month
 Swindon ICB23rd of each month 
 Wiltshire ICB 28th of each month

Paying all colleagues on the same day from the same payroll means we can streamline the payment process.

Q3. Why did you choose the 23rd of the month?
We are mindful of the financial commitments colleagues have. Bringing the date forward means that direct debit and standing orders are less likely to be affected, as these are most often arranged for the end, or beginning of each month.

Q4. Will I receive a P45 when I transfer?
No, you will not receive a P45 when you transfer into BSW ICB.

Q5. Will I receive a P60 from the ICB I currently work for?
We are currently looking into this and will provide an update when we have an answer.
