Special Leave

Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) recognise the enormous benefits that staff bring back to the Trust after volunteering overseas, and supports staff volunteering with CGHP.

The Grant Scheme provides grants to staff undertaking voluntary work overseas and staff can make special leave arrangements for voluntary work.

CUH has a special leave policy within the hospital to enable staff members who have not received study or professional leave to take up to five days of paid leave above annual entitlement if used to volunteer in a CGHP international partnership.

CGHP can help you to talk through your application with your manager if you have any concerns regarding the authorisation of leave.
