You’re one in a million

The commitment and dedication you have shown throughout the year and these challenging times has not gone unnoticed. You’ve been making a huge difference to the lives of patients at our partner Trusts.


Winter Pressures

As patient demand increases, there are more shifts available at a number of our Trusts. We appreciate everything you have done throughout 2020, the sacrifices you have made and the dedication you have shown to the NHS.

If you can work just one extra shift for us this Winter, along with all of our other bank members, this would result in an extra 1 million hours of patient care at this crucial time.

Winter Incentive

With Winter well and truly underway, we know this is the busiest time of year for the NHS, especially as patient demand increases.

As a thank you for all your hard work and dedication this year, we will be rewarding 25 of our bank members with a weekly prize of a £75 Amazon voucher to show our appreciation for working shifts through the bank during this busy festive period and supporting our NHS client Trusts.  

 The draw will take place every Tuesday from 14th December 2020 to 10th January 2021.
