Welcome to the South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust staff bank


Due to the current pandemic, NHSP has had to change the way we work to continue supporting the Trust in the best possible way during this time.

As a result of the most recent government guidance, the onsite NHSP office will be operating differently until further notice.

To minimise footfall, we will be continuing to operate on an appointment-only basis at our offices. Please only attend the office if you have an appointment and be advised of the ‘1 in 1 out’ policy.

The NHSP team can continue to be contacted by email and telephone using the contact information below. We have recently made some changes to our phone system which should make it even easier to get in touch with local NHSP representatives.


South Tyneside and Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust works in partnership with NHS Professionals (NHSP) to recruit bank staff. Joining is simple and as an NHSP bank member, you’ll receive the following perks:

  • Competitive weekly pay - work this week, get paid next week!
  • First choice of shifts at your Trust – Bank members get priority over agency.
  • Paid annual leave – build your annual leave allowance during every shift you work
  • Statutory maternity pay (subject to qualifying criteria)
  • Access to 'NHSP Stakeholder pension' for eligible members
  • Free training and development opportunities

Whatever your availability we value your skills and experience and can provide you with a fantastic opportunity to work with us in a way that suits your lifestyle.

Why not join the Bank today!
