National Bank - for Trusts

Across the NHS, healthcare staffing leaders are looking at how to manage workforce more effectively, adopting flexibility and easily implemented technology solutions to address the wide range of ever-changing requirements.

Created to respond this need, the NHS Professionals National Bank™ is an agency alternative offering that fills the gap between a Trusts' own staff bank provision and the use of external agencies, providing an integrated, cost-effective solution to the NHS’ temporary staffing requirements and greater access to talent.

Our Service

NHS Professionals National Bank has been developed to maximise the opportunity for NHS Trusts to access more healthcare professionals that wish to support the NHS and patient care. The service is not a traditional managed service - it is a cost-effective alternative to external agencies that is deployed through seamless integration with your existing rostering technology and acts as an extension to your existing internal staff bank solution. This service is aligned to NHS workforce initiatives and to the NHS Long Term People Plan.

The NHS Professionals National Bank will initially help supply nursing and midwifery workers to member Trusts, before rolling out to additional staff groups.
