As part of the NHS People Plan, the NHS People Promise sets out a series of commitments, one of which is we work flexibly which states: We do not have to sacrifice our family, our friends or our interests for work.

This ambition is to give people greater choice over their working patterns, helping them to achieve a better work-life balance. To ensure the NHS remains an employer of choice and can attract talent in a competitive job market, more action is needed to increase the uptake of flexible working.
