  • Innovative Methods of Working - The Trust supports innovative methods of working using mobile technology e.g., videoconferencing, teleconferencing and use of portable devices. The Trust also promotes use of pool cars for essential business travel rather than use of personal vehicles and has invested in a fleet of electric vehicles and charging points to support this.

Staff are also entitled to 8 paid public holidays, making a very generous overall basic paid leave entitlement of 35 days and an extended paid leave entitlement, after 10 years' service, of 41 days. Previous NHS service may be considered when calculating entitlement.
