Can someone answer this please as a part-time worker if you ask for time off for a hospital appointment are you expected to make up the time lost? No contract of employment in place.

Depends on company policy but usually yes, unless disabled or maternity related.

Never assume anyone on the internet is who they say they are. Only rely on advice from insured professionals you have paid for!

The short answer to this question is, unfortunately, yes. Employers are not required by law to allow workers to attend medical appointments in work time. This means that an employer is perfectly within their rights to take the time for attending medical appointments out of an employee's holiday allowance

Assuming you are an employee (not self employed or something) it's as advised above but what do you mean by "as a part-time worker"? Do you mean that part-time workers have to make up the time but full-time workers don't? Employers are generally not allowed to treat part time employees less favourably than full time employees, so if f/t employees aren't required to make up the time but p/t are that is probably not legal.

as p/t you presumably have some flexibility on when you can book your appointments and not lose out. tell the booking person what is suitable and see if they can find you a slot so you dont lose out. Any chance you work in the same hospital as your appointment? room for argument about late running appointments etc then.

OP hasn't said where they work, it's someone else who posted that they worked in the NHS. The OP hasn't been back since their first post but what I'd like to know when they do is whether full time staff are treated differently, which might be a breach of the Part-time Workers (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations.

Thanks for the replies gang, not sure if full time workers are treated differently but will find out, thing is about hospital appointment if you don't take it at the offered date then it could be months before you get another even if you are flexible the appointment may not be. Sorry meant to add they don't offer to take the hours back, or deduct it from your pay, you are Expected to make up the hours which means changing the times you normally work.

Update full time employee's are treated the same as part time, but they all have to make up the time lost no option to take it from your pay or holiday's.
