i have worked for nhs for 13 yrs but have moved from an acute hospital to community. although i loved working in the acute i found my body couldnt cope. i started community hosp in january but i am still finding 3 nights tough. i am a single mum now so cannot work day shifts due to the costs of childcare and nights pay more. my daughters dad can have her the nights i work and on sunday afternoons/evenings. anyway i have requested to drop my hours to 2 nights and do a 6 hour late shift every sunday (more money for sun). work are ok about reducing hours to 26 a week but say i cannot work late shift every sunday as i must be flexible!. this is the only way i can afford to drop hours. i do not qualify for benefits and have a mortgage to pay. does anyone no of any loop hole in working regs that i can use to get hours i need please.
