New flexible working rights for NHS staff first day in post


NHS staff will now be able to request flexible working arrangements from the first day in post.

The new rule will come into effect on 13 September 2021 and staff will be allowed to make an unlimited number of flexible working applications and submit them without justification or provide specific reasons.
