Work-life balance

The Trust recognises that employees are our most valuable asset and by offering attractive and fair conditions of employment, flexible working opportunities, a healthy environment and, above all encouragement to all employees to ‘own’ their organisation, we hope they will play active roles in its future.

The NHS recognises the importance of a healthy balance between work and life and is bringing about a real culture change within the NHS - reducing stress, increasing motivation, and improving productivity among staff.

Flexible working means that:

  • part time roles and job-share opportunities are often available, as well as term-time only, evening and weekend positions
  • help with childcare, including nursery care, after school clubs and emergency care
  • if you are studying for a qualification, raising a family, or juggling other responsibilities, we will do everything we can to combine these commitments with your work
  • you will also have access to occupational health services, such as counselling.
