It’s important to us that you’re looked after and rewarded for your hard work, and we offer a wide range of benefits as soon as you join us.



Our employee benefits platform brings together all our employee benefits and wellbeing offers into one easy to access place. HPFT wants your wellbeing to be a priority.  It hosts a range of benefits and support that are available to HPFT staff from lifestyle discounts, wellbeing support and assists in professional development.


We have partnered with Wagestream, a financial wellbeing app that provides financial support services, debt management advice and advances on salary. Wagestream enables you to obtain a pre-agreed percentage of your pay at any point during the month, offering financial flexibility should the need arise. Plus you can track your wages in real time and create a savings pot with a 5% interest rate.

Car Leasing Scheme

Working in partnership with Knowles Fleet, HPFT’s car salary sacrifice scheme allows you to drive a brand new car, funded by a reduction in salary. The scheme includes insurance, maintenance for a fixed monthly amount, with no deposit payable or credit checks required. This, combined with the advantages of paying for your car through the use of salary sacrifice, could save you money when compared to retail personal leasing schemes.

Childcare Support

There are a variety of holiday schemes, clubs and activities available offering discounts to HPFT staff.  Additional financial support for childcare is available through government schemes and Healthcare Workers’ Foundation, Childcare Choices and Help for Households.

Travel Discounts

Save up to 25% on selected bus travel.

Cycle to Work Scheme

Up to £1,000 worth of bike and accessories via salary sacrifice. This is effectively a ‘hire’ scheme with the option to purchase the bike after a year.

Free Eye Test and *Glasses for VDU users

The Trust has arranged for eye care vouchers to be purchased from Specsavers which will allow regular users of computers whilst working to have their eyes tested and if necessary, a free pair of glasses will be given to the user for display screen use only.

NHS Discounts

Being a HPFT member of staff, you’ll be available to receive a variety of NHS discounts from a variety of national and local sites on a wide range of goods and services from children’s activity camps, eye tests, retail shops and more.

Health & Wellbeing Support

We want to ensure all staff feel physically and mentally healthy, safe and supported to bring their whole selves to work. We offer staff a wide range of support from: mindfulness sessions, mini health checks, wellbeing festivals, monthly activities to take part in and Schwartz Rounds – where staff can join and reflect together on the emotional aspects of work.


We have a range of leadership programmes including an accredited Leadership Academy, apprenticeships and secondments.

Employee Assistance Programme (EAP)

A free, confidential support line to help you with everyday issues. No matter what the issue, problem or event, we are here to support you, 24 hours a day, in confidence and free of charge.


Our staff is our greatest asset so we like to highlight those who go above and beyond. Our monthly and annual staff awards recognise consistent demonstration of our values, every day and with every person.

While our Long Service Awards celebrate the loyalty of our staff after 25 years working within the NHS.

Flexible working

Because we understand that the world has changed and it’s important to balance work responsibilities with the rest of your life.

Annual leave

You’ll immediately be entitled to 27 days holiday plus 8 Bank Holidays a year. This then increases to 29 days after 5 years and 33 days after 10 years or more.

Buying & Selling annual leave

Allows staff the flexibility to alter their holiday entitlement by selling and buying some of their current entitlement. This gives additional choice and flexibility to your reward benefits package.
