We support the ‘Disability Confident’ scheme which means that we guarantee to invite to assessment all applicants with a disability who meet the essential criteria for a job vacancy and to consider them on their abilities.

As a Disability Confident Committed Employer we have committed to:

  • Ensuring our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible
  • Communicating and promoting vacancies
  • Offering an interview to disabled people
  • Anticipating and providing reasonable adjustments as required
  • Supporting any existing employee who acquires a disability or long-term health condition, enabling them to stay in work

Reasonable Adjustment

If you have a disability, you may need reasonable adjustments to be made to enable you to take part in our selection processes.

If you need assistance to complete the application form or a copy in large or different format, or adjustments to our literacy and numeracy assessments if you have dyslexia, please contact the recruiting manager (listed in the NHS Jobs advertisement), or the HR Support Services team on telephone number (01246) 513177, or e mail

Please note that reasonable adjustments for successful applicants with a disability will be fully considered on appointment.

We signed up to the Halo Code in January 2022 – the UK’s first Black hair code – to protect the rights of staff who come to work with natural hair and protective hairstyles associated with their racial, ethnic, and cultural identities.

The Halo Code was developed by the Halo Collective and brings together organisations and schools who have made a commitment to work towards creating a future without hair discrimination.
