Time Off To Attend Medical Or Dental Appointments

  • Whilst there is not automatic entitlement to paid time off during working hours to attend medical and dental appointments, other than under statutory maternity regulations, the Trust recognises that there may be occasions when there is no alternative.
  • This policy provides guidance for employees, managers, staffside representatives and HR staff on managing requests for time off for routine and emergency appointments during working hours.
