Flexible Working

All employees within NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde with 26 weeks continuous service (at time of the application) have a right to request flexible working.  

This Policy details the process for requesting flexible working, and describes three main types:

  1. Flexi-time
  2. Self-rostering
  3. Annualised Hours.

Successful applications will result in a permanent change to that employee’s terms and conditions of employment (unless otherwise agreed).

Non-acceptance of an application for flexible working can only be for

valid and objective service/operational reasons and the line manager must, confirm these reasons in writing to the employee outlining their right of appeal.

Top Tips on using the POLICY.....

  1. Only one flexible working application can be submitted within a 12 month period.
  2. For successful applications the employee has no right to revert back to their previous working pattern.
  3. The manager must arrange a meeting within 4 weeks of receipt of an application and respond in writing no later than 2 weeks after the meeting.
