Staff benefits

This means that all staff are entitled to work in an organisation that is investing in more flexible, supportive and family friendly working arrangements to improve diversity and develop staff skills to improve patient services. We actively encourage staff to put forward ideas for change to improve our services and all suggestions are considered.
