The HSE is implementing the new national integrated staff records and pay programme (NiSRP) in the western region.
In March 2023, the programme deployed the NiSRP solution in the southern region,
which amounted to an additional 18,000 staff members, a HSE spokesperson told the Medical Independent (MI).
The roll-out to the south occurred “on schedule and on budget”, the spokesperson added.
Since 2019, the programme has delivered its solution to over 80,000 employees in six of the eight regions, which is approximately 80 per cent of staff in the health service.
“These staff members are benefitting from a ‘future proof’ payroll system with reduced time spent on administrative processing, whilst the HSE as a whole is benefitting (amongst other gains) from access to more granular, accessible, and ‘real-time’ data for workforce planning and management purposes. It is now delivering this solution into the western region,” according to the spokesperson.
The programme expects delivery to the entire statutory health sector to be completed in 2025.

The HSE has stated the NiSRP will help address the problem of overpayments.
