NHS Injury Allowance guidance

NHS Staff Council guidance on the NHS Injury Allowance
Agenda for change

27 March 2017

The NHS injury allowance provides support for staff who sustain an injury, disease or other health condition which is attributable to their employment.

The NHS injury allowance scheme was introduced on 31 March 2013 following a NHS Staff Council partnership review of the NHS injury benefit scheme. A range of support materials have been produced by the NHS Staff Council to help both employers and staff understand the provisions of the NHS injury allowance.
