Important: Christmas bank payroll

There is a major national upgrade to ESR over the Christmas period which will involve downtime of the whole system between 12pm Wednesday 27th December 2017 and 8am Tuesday 2nd January 2018.  This will have an impact on the weekly (bank) payroll normally paid on 29th December.   It means that it will not be possible to process a payroll in that week therefore 2 weeks will need to be paid the following week which is 5th January.  Unfortunately this is not within our control and all Trusts who run a weekly payroll will be affected.
