NHS injury allowance - Section 22

Wet floor sign

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.
