The Adverse Weather Policy applies to all employees of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde including Bank staff.
Adverse weather is a term which describes weather events which are particularly severe and challenge models of normal service delivery and are associated with RED or AMBER weather warnings from the Met. Office.
The policy sets out the context in which NHSGGC employees can contribute to continuity of healthcare services to the population in a way which recognises the particular challenges faced if there are major transport issues and school closures.
The policy affords managers a degree of discretion to operate within the broad parameters.
Please note when police advice is not to make any unnecessary journeys, this generally refers to journeys not involving workers who help maintain essential public services.
Please contact the HR Support and Advice Unit if you wish clarification on the application of this policy.
