This guidance is designed, for managers and team members, to increase awareness relating to Islamic prayer times. It has been prepared in the spirit of creating an inclusive workplace that respects the beliefs and practices of its Muslim staff. The guidance is geared towards non-clinical NHS settings in particular.
Muslim staff make-up a significant proportion of the NHS workforce. Enabling flexibility and allowing for reasonable adjustments at work will support Muslim employees to observe their religious obligations, feel comfortable embracing their identity in the workplace and enable them to bring their whole selves to work.
