Bending over backwards

Now that the government have expanded flexible working to include everyone, I expect this will have a major impact on GP practices.

We have always had the major requirement when recruiting that our staff have the flexibility to cover absences etc work overtime and can work different hours when needed, but I suspect now that the boot is firmly on the other foot. How flexible is your practice in giving the staff flexibility to work a different pattern?

Forward thinking practices may have realised the benefits long ago by introducing core hours and flexible hours but I suspect many practices will be reeling from an influx of flexible working requests when staff realize that yes, they might fancy taking Fridays off in future. How do you fancy balancing that request when 4 or 5 people ask for it in the space of a week?

As a Practice Manager, how about a couple of days a week working at home? How far will your practice bend over backwards to keep the staff motivated and happy? I suspect this will be an interesting 6 months to come...
