Our Policy

NHSGGC values the diversity in its workforce and as a double tick, positive about disability employer, encourages applications from candidates with disabilities. NHSGGC recognises that disabilities can take many forms and that some employees with a disability can face challenges in the workplace.

Under the double tick standard the Health Board guarantees to interview all applicants with a disability who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and consider them on their abilities.

NHSGGC also commits to employing the best candidates for roles, regardless of their personal make-up and commits to supporting employees to remain in their jobs if they develop a disability, as far as is reasonably practical.

Following its recent re-assessment, the NHSGGC has once again been awarded the double tick standard. This means that the organisation has made the following commitments:

  • To interview all applicants with a disability who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and consider them on their abilities.
  • To ensure there is a mechanism in place to discuss at any time, but at least once a year, with disabled employees what can be done to make sure they can develop and use their abilities.
  • To make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment.
  • To take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make the commitments work.

Each year NHSGGC will review these commitments and what has been achieved, to plan ways to improve on them and to let employees and the Jobcentre know about progress and future plans.
