Business Travel

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde is committed to reducing the financial and environmental impact arising from its business travel.  Where possible, the aim of this policy is to encourage employees to reduce unnecessary travel and encourage the use of more sustainable forms of transport. However, the Board recognises that sometimes there is no alternative to using a car for business travel and this policy is not intended to impede business travel where it is required nor to restrict car use where it is the most appropriate mode of transport for business purposes. Neither is this policy intended to be applied to the detriment of those employees with restricted mobility. This policy applies to all staff employed by NHSGGC.


Top Tips on using the Business Travel Policy.......

  • Before undertaking any journey, staff should consider the Business Travel Hierarchy.
  • Reflect on the need to travel for business purposes.
  • Walking and cycling are healthy, sustainable and very low cost travel options. Staff should be encouraged to consider alternative travel options if their role can facilitate this approach.
  • Bus, train and SPT subway travel provide an alternative to car-based business travel for short, medium and long distances.
  • Many car trips could be avoided if staff coordinated travel plans and shared cars, for example, when attending the same meeting. An additional mileage rate for each passenger is paid.
