The guidance, released today by the Department of Health, aims to help employers put in place policies to consider applications from staff and justify their decisions to re-employ staff based on value for money, service needs and patient care.
There are benefits for both employers and employees, including:
- retaining valuable skills and knowledge in the NHS
- supporting the health and wellbeing of older workers who wish to continue to work
- helping to manage overall workforce costs
- supporting staff with the transition from work to retirement.
