Thank you – birthday bonus announced for CCG staff

All staff across NHS Herts Valleys CCG, NHS East and North Hertfordshire CCG and NHS West Essex CCG can take their birthday off this coming year without having to dip into their holiday allowance.

Peter Wightman, Managing director of NHS West Essex CCG, said he anticipates it is something all providers within the ICS will offer in gratitude for the hard work of staff in recent times.

“We wanted to offer this bonus day off as a thank you to all staff for their commitment, dedication and contributions during the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said following the decision.

Staff should arrange the birthday day off with their line manager, taking the nearest working day should it fall on a weekend or bank holiday.

It will not be something to carry over or include as part of annual leave and can be claimed for birthdays between September 1 of this year and August 31 2021.

For those who’ve just had a birthday – since 1 September – please identify a day in the next few weeks when you can take this  belated birthday day away from work, and agree this with your manager.
