Childcare Salary Sacrifice Scheme

Our childcare salary sacrifice scheme can help you if you are a tax paying parent currently working for us. This is an Inland Revenue scheme, in which part of an employee’s salary is ‘sacrificed’ by the value of the subsidised childcare provided by an employer, typically in a workplace nursery. This means the employee does not have to pay income tax, national insurance, or an occupational pension, on the amount that would otherwise be spent on his or her child’s nursery place. This means that if you elect to accept a place at the nursery, in exchange for an equivalent reduction in your salary, this will be tax-free, thus increasing your take home pay. It is optional to participate in this scheme and details are available when you join us. For detailed information, contact the Payroll Department by emailing

Childcare Voucher Scheme

If you decide to use our NBT options you can obtain childcare vouchers using the scheme run by Edenred. For more information call Edenred on 0800 2471233 or email quoting North Bristol NHS Trust.

Personal and Professional Development

All of our employees are given access to CPD. This is through annual appraisal-reviews, which give staff the chance to undertake personal development plans. We can offer you some truly excellent professional development opportunities.
