25 March 2022

The NHS Staff Council has published guidance confirming the arrangements for leave and pay in England for the additional public holiday to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee on Friday, 3 June 2022. This follows the steer from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) on how the additional public holiday should be treated:

  • the additional public holiday will be honoured
  • pay arrangements for the day, including arrangements for staff who are required to work, are for local determination
  • equal treatment of part-time staff will need to be considered as part of any local approach.

The guidance sets out a number of risks and benefits that may need to be considered as part of any conversations through local partnership structures.
