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.
