Promoting and supporting reservists at the Trust

Reservists bring a wealth of experience and skills to the organisation and we recognise that this contributes to the delivery of safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led patient care.

At the Trust we are proud to employ and support a number of reservists.

Reservists bring a wealth of experience and skills to the organisation and we recognise that this contributes to the delivery of safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led patient care.

As a Trust, we actively seek to support our reservists on deployment by providing two weeks special leave (one week paid/one week unpaid).

Our reservists have full access to an occupational health service to which they can self-refer in a confidential manner.

Through the Trust’s armed forces staff network we would actively seek to buddy / mentoring our reservists in preparation for, during and upon return from deployment, should this be appropriate.

From February 2018 the Trust started active promotion of the reserves with members of the 212 Field Hospital. These events were very positive and we are delighted to announce that further collaboration with the 212 Field Hospital will continue in the coming months and years.
