Staff transfer guides

Explore our different guides to supporting staff through change and transfer.

Social partners worked together when developing the staff transfer guides and continue with this partnership approach to keep them up-to-date.

These guides are designed to support staff who are facing transfer under the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 (TUPE) or a statutory transfer from an NHS organisation to a provider of NHS funded services in England. The guides provide essential information - explaining the implications of the transfer on a staff member's pay, pension and terms and conditions and sets out the employment standards staff have the right to expect, wherever they undertake NHS funded work.

The guides apply to staff who work for an NHS employer in England. If you are transferring out of an NHS organisation or an organisation contracted to undertake NHS work in England to a job working for a provider of NHS funded services in another part of the UK, you may want to discuss the implications for your employment status and rights with your HR or trade union representative.
