Sickness Absence Management

All members of staff are expected to be committed to providing an efficient and effective service to patients of the Trust.  The commitment to attend work is integral to this aim.  In return, managers will provide any reasonable support, advice and guidance to enable staff to do this and will be supportive if staff are unable to attend work due to illness. 

We support managers and employees by providing relevant medical information to reduce the likelihood of absence and help facilitate return to work.  Further information can be found at :
