Placing people at the heart of the NHS 

Whatever your background or story, your role is vital to the NHS, particularly during this exceptional year. Every member on our bank who works a shift or takes up a long-term placement, makes a real difference to patients’ lives and safety every day. We value your skills, dedication, and commitment in supporting your local Trust and the NHS.

NHS staff banks play a key role in supporting the NHS to maintain high standards of patient safety and care. If a hospital does not have enough staff on a ward, due to increased demand, sickness, or staff shortages, they need the support of bank staff.

Working through NHSP and Doctors Direct helps your Trust reduce its reliance on recruitment agencies, enabling cost savings to be reinvested into where it matters most, patient care and safety.

Our Bank Members   

Right now, we have over 130,000 members registered on our bank, working at the heart of the NHS. Our members work in various roles, grades, and specialities across Nursing & Midwifery, Non-Clinical (Admin, Estate, Facilities), Allied Health Professionals, Healthcare Scientists and Personal Social Services. We also have Doctors registered and working with us at over 20 NHS Trusts through our Doctors Direct service.

You’re one in a million! Joining us to work even just one extra shift a month this Winter with our bank members, could result in over one million additional hours of patient care for our NHS at this crucial time.
