NHS Professionals

Introduction

Like other NHS organisations, our Trust is required to manage its resources efficiently and effectively. Temporary staffing is an area where the Trust can increase efficiency by improving its demand management, planning and usage.

To this end, we have chosen NHS Professionals' Managed Flexible Workforce Service to reduce temporary staffing costs with its managed flexible workforce service.

NHSP is wholly owned by the Department of Health and is the largest provider of managed flexible workforce services to the NHS, placing more than 1.5 million shifts a year, recruiting over 600 fully-screened and vetted flexible workers a month, and providing high quality workers to over 80 NHS Trusts across England.

NHS Professionals works within each client Trust as part of the team, with local account management backed up by state-of-the-art electronic processes.

NHS Professionals will provide the Trust with managed flexible workforce services for the following staff groups:

  • Nursing
  • Administration & Clerical (A&C)
  • Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) and
  • Medical staff

It is envisaged that the affected staff (workers who have worked a bank shift within the last 6 months) will transfer their bank working arrangements from the Trust to NHS Professionals with effect from 19 September 2011.
