Thank you to Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust who signed the charter on 21st March 2017 providing protection for their 5,500 employees.
Director of Workforce and Organisational Development , Jose Fernandez, said:
“Pennine Care already supports staff who are terminally ill with care and compassion, but it is not explicitly outlined in a policy. By signing up to the charter, our staff can be sure that the Trust would provide them with proper protection and support if they were diagnosed with a terminal illness. It allows them to have peace of mind knowing their job is protected and the future financial security of their family is guaranteed.”
