Did you know that last year over 30,000 people left their NHS role due to work-life balance?

We’ve joined forces with the other NHS unions to launch a new campaign – Let’s #TalkAboutFlex – encouraging people to make better use of flexible working.

It’s no secret that many colleagues are suffering from burnout and low morale, creating a vicious cycle of vacancies and increasing workloads. Rising costs of childcare and other care costs are adding to the pressure and making it harder to recruit and retain staff.

With so many options, flexible working isn’t just for people with caring responsibilities, or those in non-clinical roles. Whatever your job, flex can help you to manage your commitments, manage your wellbeing, and create a better work-life balance.

Take a look at our new microsite, www.talkaboutflex.org, which is packed with practical examples, tips and resources to help you find your flex.

Got a great example of flex in action? Or a flex fail, where out-dated thinking is preventing people from working flexibly? Share your flexible working stories at [email protected] or join the conversation to #TalkAboutFlex on social media.

Flexible working can help us to make the NHS a better place to work and improve patient care.

Don’t delay, find the joy of flex today!
