Improving nurse retention: flexible retirement guide
This guide focuses on flexible working through the lens of supporting nurses to access more flexible forms of retirement, outlining the benefits of flexible retirement, the basic principles and what it can look like in practice.
This resource is aimed at colleagues that have a responsibility or interest in implementing flexible working, including HR professionals, line managers and nurse leaders. While the focus of this guide is tailored to the nursing workforce, improving access to flexible retirement for all staff groups is important in making the NHS an attractive place to work and many of the principles outlined in this guide can be applied to different sections of the workforce.
This guide has been commissioned by NHS England and NHS Improvement and the Department of Health and Social Care, to support employer organisations to improve their offer of flexibility for the nursing workforce.
