I'll make this a little clearer. I'm currently employed by a trust and am on maternity leave, but I have moved to the other side of the country and have a job waiting for me where I live now. I need to hand in my notice, so I was wondering if I have e.g. 2 months between finishing the one job (even though I wont go back due to maternity leave) and being able to start the next one, I would loose the benefit of having been in continuous employment with the NHS. Does anyone know the anser? I'm not quite sure how it would work. Surely with CRB checks and all that not all transitions between jobs are smooth and there is often some sort of gap between finishing one and starting another position?
I thought it was a lot less than that - do check Agenda for Change - there's definitely something in the new redundancy package (we have just gone through a round of redundancies so I read it quite recently).
