The Annual Leave Policy applies to all employees of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde employed on Agenda for Change terms and conditions.
The aim of this policy is to provide a uniform and equitable approach to the calculation of annual leave and bank holiday entitlements which take into account the entitlements and arrangements defined under Agenda for Change.
The policy is to determine annual leave entitlement in hours not days for all staff regardless of whether the employee is full-time or part time. The benefit for all employees in calculating entitlement in hours is that this ensures equity for all by ensuring that staff who work variable hours/shifts do not receive either more or less leave than colleagues who work a standard pattern.
Please contact the HR Support and Advice Unit if you wish clarification on the application of this policy.
