Flexible working policy updates

From Monday 13 September 2021, section 33 of the NHS terms and conditions of service handbook will be updated to include the right for NHS employees to request flexible working from day one.

Amendments have been made to the Trust’s Flexible Working Policy regarding the right to submit a flexible working request from first joining the Trust and removal of a limit to the number of requests that can be made within a 12-month period.  Please also see the NHSE Guide to making flexible working requests flowchart.

If you have any queries regarding this change, please contact the employee relations team by either emailing dchst.employeerelations@nhs.net or by calling 07785 414129.
