P_HR_51 Relocation Policy

 This policy forms a comprehensive guide to eligibility for, and payment of, relocation and associated expenses incurred when taking up an appointment with Lincolnshire Community Health Services NHS Trust.

The Relocation Expenses policy is designed to act as a recruitment incentive and reflects the importance that the organisation places on attracting and retaining skilled staff and its commitment to the principle of Equal Opportunities and Work Life Balance.

The Relocation Expenses Policy aims to:

  • ensure that employees who are relocating are no worse off financially and preferably have volunteered for relocation,
  • that the relocation is carried out to a schedule known and agreed by all those involved
  • the costs incurred to the organisation are reasonable and relevant to the relocation
