National Employee Benefits Day

Our employees here at Shropdoc are the lifeblood of our organisation - they are the essential pillar ensuring our service meets our patients' needs.


We strive to ensure that as well as meeting the needs of our patients, we also meet the needs of our employees - and employee benefits are something we feel strongly about.


National Employee Benefits Day


National Employee Benefits Day is held every April and was created to appreciate the hard work and planning done by employers who strive to provide benefits to their employees that make a helpful change in their lives. 


Here at Shropdoc we have a great team of employees who work together to provide benefits for our teams that really make a difference.


Looking after physical and mental health is vital for long-term personal health and wellbeing so we are committed to supporting our employees with this.


Personal health and wellbeing


Shropdoc offers all employees the free opportunity to join Paycare as part of our benefits package. 


Employees can claim for the following as part of this benefit (up to the annual limit of their cover):


·         Dental costs

·         Optician costs (including eye tests and glasses)

·         Well-man and well-woman health screening

·         Counselling (including telephone and face-to-face)

·         Helpline services (including financial relationships)

·         Private GP appointments 24/7 (including UK and worldwide cover)

·         Chiropody

·         Physiotherapy

·         Osteopathy

·         Acupuncture

·         Homeopathy

·         Hypnotherapy

·         Reflexology

·         Specialist consultations and screenings (including MRI scans and X-rays)

·         Excess of private medical insurance

·         Additional discounts (including certain shops, holidays and gym memberships)


And for a nominal additional cost friends and family of our employees can also be added.


Benefits programmes


We also offer entry to the NHS Pension Scheme from the first day of employment, a Blue Light Card, pay uplifts for antisocial hours, a cycle-to-work scheme, enhancements for unsociable working and access to a range of other local and national discounts eg travel, shopping, insurance, mobile phones.


Employees at Shropdoc also receive:


  • 25 days annual leave per year (plus Bank Holidays) rising to 27 days after 5 years service and 29 days after 10 years service.  Entitlement calculated on pro-rata basis for part time employees.

  • Comprehensive on-the-job training

  • Full uniform for patient-facing roles


It has been almost 80 years since employee benefits programs were introduced in the workspace, and having these kinds of programmes leads to motivated employees who work to ensure their organisation’s goals are being met.
