Annual leave

The Trust's generous annual leave allowance runs from 1 April to 31 March and employees are entitled to annual leave and general public holidays as follows:

Length of NHS service Annual leave and General Public Holidays (days)  Annual leave and General Public Holidays (hours)
On appointment 27 days + 8 days 202.5 hours + 60 hours
After 5 years service 29 days+ 8 days 217.5 hours + 60 hours
After 10 years service 33 days + 8 days 247.5 hours + 60 hours


For employees working part-time hours and standard shifts other than 7.5 hours (excluding meal-breaks), annual leave and public holiday entitlements are calculated and taken in hours, on a pro-rata basis for part-time employees. The number of Bank Holidays may vary in a leave year depending on when Easter falls.
