The Department of Health Sciences recognises that each individual staff member has a different work-life balance and is committed to ensure that everyone's needs are respected and considered.

The University also offers Maternity, Paternity and Shared Parental Leave schemes.
The Department recognises that there are a range of circumstances when you may need to take time away from work, but that it may not be reasonably expected for you to use annual leave or flexi-time.
Leave in special circumstances is intended to provide a sympathetic response to this, and the procedure and guidance provide a framework for making and considering these requests for time off. Visit the University leave in special circumstances page for further information.
