PDA Ability Network produces factsheet supporting those accessing reasonable adjustments

The PDA Ability Network has developed a factsheet that highlights key information and sources of support around reasonable adjustments at work.

Wed 10th May 2023 The PDA

What are reasonable adjustments?

Under the Equality Act 2010 employers must make reasonable adjustments for employees and workers.

ACAS defines reasonable adjustments as, “changes an employer makes to remove or reduce a disadvantage related to someone’s disability.” In practice, this often means an employer supporting an employee with the provision of additional or specialist equipment, or through flexibility such as a change to working hours.

This factsheet, produced by the PDA Ability Network, discusses disability in pharmacy and what sort of adjustments a pharmacist may need. The factsheet also covers the support available to those accessing reasonable adjustments.

PDA members needing support can contact the PDA Member Support Centre. Pharmacists can also contact the PDA’s charity partners, Pharmacist Support or Scope, the disability equality charity in England and Wales.
