Reserve Forces Training and Mobilisation

NHS Scotland employ a number of staff who are in the Reserve Forces and who may be subject to call up and mobilisation in areas of conflict. These staff also require regular time off for training to maintain their skills and readiness for deployment.

NHS Scotland supports employees who are members of or wish to join the Volunteer Reserve Forces. These consist of the Royal Naval Reserve (RNR), the Royal Marines Reserve (RMR), the Territorial Army (TA) and the Reserve Air Forces (RAFR and RAuxAF). The policy will also apply to Regular Reservists, who are ex-regulars who may retain a liability to be mobilised.
