National Bank


The agency alternative offering from NHS Professionals National Bank

NHS Trusts are constantly looking at new and innovative ways to manage their workforce. Our experience tells us using an agile recruitment model, that is flexible and easily implemented, is essential to successful staffing.

The NHS Professionals National Bank bridges the gap between your own staff bank provision and the use of external agencies, providing an integrated, cost-effective solution to your temporary staffing needs.



For Trusts For Healthcare Professionals


What is NHS Professionals National Bank?

This new service has been developed to maximise the opportunity for NHS Trusts to utilise healthcare professionals where needed and provide new career opportunities in a variety of healthcare settings, to better support patient care.

National Bank is not a traditional managed service - it is a cost-effective workforce solution deployed through seamless integration with your rostering technology and acts as an extension to your existing bank, instead of utilising external recruitment agencies.

It allows experienced healthcare professionals to be available and deployed to any NHS Trust in England. We work with Trusts to identify local staffing needs and meet them through our talent pool of dedicated National Bank Members. This service is aligned to NHS workforce initiatives and to the NHS Long Term People Plan.
