Other staff benefits
We're family friendly
We operate a range of family friendly policies, including
generous maternity, shared parental, partner and adoption leave and
entitlements. Our work-life balance commitment offers a series of
policies that cover a wide range of staff needs. There's also a
Childcare Voucher Scheme enabling you to save tax and national
insurance contributions on the costs of your childcare. Our
dedicated and experienced Staff Benefits and Wellbeing Lead can
provide a wide range of childcare information and guidance to help
you to balance work and family commitments effectively.
Even if you don't have a family, you may well benefit from our
support of flexible working patterns, including options to work
flexi-time, part time hours, job share and term time working.
We have number of initiatives aimed at helping our staff get to
work without bringing their cars. There's HUBS - a free bus
jointly funded with Bristol University - and national Lift
Share Club. Or, if you'd rather get here on two wheels, choose from
free motor bike parking, membership of SMUG - our motor bike users
group - or BUGS - our bike users group, - and use of the secure,
enclosed cycle centre with shower facilities.
We're committed to staff health and wellbeing
As part of our commitment to promoting, maintaining and
improving the overall wellbeing of our staff, we offer occupational
health, counselling and physiotherapy services. We also have a team
of chaplains, providing pastoral and spiritual support to all
staff, whatever their beliefs and views and quiet rooms are
available in all our hospitals.
We also offer a number of other free, onsite initiatives to
assist colleagues when they need it including, money advice from
the Money Advice Service, smoking cessation support, telephone
physiotherapy support (Physio Direct), working during pregnancy
workshops, annual staff wellbeing week, staff forums (BAME, LGBT,
