“I joined the NHS family in 2013 and am now entitled to an additional two days of annual leave which I love! I am based in London but work flexibly between a number of offices so no one day is ever the same for me which keeps me on my toes. The flexibility is great for me and really helps me keep the essential work life balance.”

Karishma Patel, Senior Marketing Officer

“I have worked for the NHS for 6 years and love the leave entitlement. One of the main reasons I decided to join the NHS over the private sector was flexibility. I find NEL a great place to work and the flexible working that is offered here fits in impeccably with my home life, helping me to create the perfect work life balance.”
