Employee Benefits

Ramsay recognises that whilst you may choose to work for many different reasons, it is important that you are fairly rewarded for your contribution. In addition to your competitive basic salary (which will be reviewed annually), Ramsay provides the following benefits to all qualifying employees.


Annual Leave

All employees begin with a basic pro rata entitlement of 33 days leave (including Bank Holidays) which increases with service up to a possible 39 days.


Career Development Opportunities

Ramsay is passionate about its people and invests heavily in providing opportunities for employees to strengthen existing skills and develop new ones.


Car Parking (free at the majority of our locations)


Continuous Professional Development

A range of support tools exist to ensure that employees are able to demonstrate continual growth and reflection to meet the requirements of their professional body.


Cycle to Work

Available through salary sacrifice as part of Ramsay’s flexible benefits package.


Discounts Programme

A range of discounts available from high street and on line retailers, travel companies and restaurants.


Discretionary Bonus Scheme (hospital staff only)

Subject to qualifying criteria.


Employee Assistance Programme

Confidential telephone or (where appropriate) face to face advice and support for a range of life situations.


Life Assurance

3 times basic annual salary for all contracted employees.


Long Service Awards

Gift vouchers and additional annual leave for every 5 completed years of service.



All eligible employees will be auto enrolled in to the Ramsay Health Care Operations Pension Scheme at the prevailing statutory rates. After a qualifying period the company contributions will be increased, subject to certain criteria.


Performance Development Review

We believe that formal feedback is important to enable our staff to perform effectively, feel engaged and reach their full potential. We therefore have a structured process of annual performance review for every employee.


Private Healthcare Scheme

After 6 months service, employees may join the Ramsay Healthcare Scheme. Part time staff are required to make a contribution. Dependents may also be included at an additional charge.


Subsidised Staff Restaurants

Our hospital restaurants provide a range of reasonably priced, hot and cold meals for all staff.



Hospital staff are provided with a professional, high quality uniform.


Unsociable Hours Enhancements

Recognising that healthcare is not a 9 to 5 service, our employees are paid salary enhancements for hours worked at weekends, evenings and Bank Holidays.


Wellbeing Tools and Support (including company sick pay)

The wellbeing of our employees is vital if we are to deliver high quality patient care. We therefore have comprehensive in house wellbeing services to support our employees with health maintenance and absence management.


Work Life Balance

Ramsay operates a number of policies and procedures to support the work life balance of our employees.
