NHSP Staff Bank

One of the biggest challenges NHS trusts face, is ensuring the quality of patient care whilst working within strict budgets. A lack of available staff means unfilled shifts, which in turn leads to unfilled commitments to patients and their families. What NHS trusts need is a reliable supply of experienced staff, ready to step in and fill shifts when trusts need them most.

And that’s where NHS Professionals comes in. Owned by the Department of Health and Social Care and part of the NHS family, we work in partnership with over 55 NHS trusts to help them to reduce their reliance on agencies by providing a ‘bank’ of highly skilled and pre-screened staff who want to work for the NHS.

Our business was founded on nursing and midwifery, but now we specialise in much more. Right now, we have over 130,000 members registered on our bank from various roles, grades and specialities. Our bank members fill around 26 million hours for our clients each year, working flexibly around their lifestyles by choosing the hours that suit them.

“Started as a 16-year-old Cadet Nurse following in a long line of healthcare professionals in my family. Never really considered anything else other than the military - I have been a Army Reserve Nursing Officer alongside my NHS career for over 20 years. After a 44-year full time NHS career it is now nice to work as much or as little as I want. This enables me to still feel my skills are valuable whilst allowing me to enjoy some retirement leisure time.”
