Staff benefits

As an employee of Southern Health and the NHS, you’ll be entitled to a range of perks and benefits.

Community care nurses

Fantastic annual leave allowance

Typically most full-time staff will be entitled to 27 days as well as bank holidays, which increases after five and ten years service. Staff employed under social care contracts and some clinical staff may have different allowances.

We also have policies which allow staff to request additional unpaid leave and special leave (which covers unforeseen situations such as compassionate or carer leave).

Great pension scheme

Membership to the excellent NHS pension scheme is voluntary, but you’ll automatically become a member when you start (unless you choose to opt out). Check our section on payments and pensions for more information.

Worry-free childcare

To help ease with the cost of childcare, parents can claim back some national insurance contributions by exchanging part of their salary for childcare vouchers.

Most registered childcare providers accept the vouchers, which means you shouldn’t be restricted in the type of childcare you choose. For more information please contact Fideliti on 0800 288 8727
