NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde values diversity and recognises the significant experience and knowledge that our staff with long service contribute to NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. The Board works within a changing demography and as the population grows older, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde’s employment practices need to adapt to reflect the increasing age of our workforce and provide staff with flexibility in managing their financial future by creating options to work post retirement.
Therefore, the following guidance is aimed at all staff who decide to retire but expresses a desire to return to work on a part or full time basis. This guidance provides information on how this may be applied fairly and consistently.
It is important to note, there is no automatic right for an employee to return to work following retirement. Any decision to return as a result of a service requirement and in line with this guidance requires the agreement of the relevant senior manager and considered on a case by case basis.
In the first instance please discuss the options with your line manager and you may also wish to contact SPPA on 01896 893000 (if a member) to establish and understand impact on pension benefits and obtain an Application Form.
If you would like like to discuss any part of the guidance in more detail, please contact the HR Support and Advice Enquiry Team on 0141 278 2700 option 2.
