Staff living with a health condition or disability may need adjustments to enable them to effectively perform their role at work.
The Equality Act 2010 enshrines this under the concept of making 'reasonable adjustments'
This includes making adjustments where necessary in the recruitment process, to ensure that disabled workers aren't discouraged or prevented from applying for a post, and throughout their employment.
Any adjustments you make for an individual should be periodically reviewed, to ensure that they remain appropriate.
This toolkit contains information on a number of conditions for which people may need adjustments to enable them to stay at work and perform their role effectively.

Access to Work
Access to Work can provide grants to individuals that enable them to start work or to remain in work. The employee must make the application themselves. Your department's HR Business Partner can provide advice and support to you and the employee.
Expectant and new mothers
Although not considered a health condition as such, expectant and new mothers are included here because of the need to ensure that any necessary adjustments to their role are made effectively.
