Many reservists work in the NHS at all levels and, like full time members of the Armed Forces, take part in the full range of military and civil relief operations. Currently, there are more than 32,000 trained reservists. Around 4,000 of these reservists come from a variety NHS roles such as Hospital Porters, Nurses, Project Managers, Doctors, Administrators and Healthcare Assistants.

As a Trust we support any member of staff who is part of, or wishes to join the Reserve Service.

To show our support the Trust grants members of the Reserve service an additional 10 days paid leave to attend annual camp.

We also have a detailed mobilisation policy in case individuals are called up for deployment. We also have two dedicated Armed Forces Reserve Champions as part of our work force. Both have years of experience in the Reserve service.
