Last year, more than 231,448 different patients – that is 40% of the Worcestershire population received care across the different Trust sites.

NHSP Staff Bank

One of the biggest challenges NHS trusts face, is ensuring the quality of patient care whilst working within strict budgets. A lack of available staff means unfilled shifts, which in turn leads to unfilled commitments to patients and their families. What NHS trusts need is a reliable supply of experienced staff, ready to step in and fill shifts when trusts need them most.

And that’s where NHS Professionals comes in. Owned by the Department of Health and Social Care and part of the NHS family, we are working in partnership with Worcester Acute Hospitals NHS Trust to help them to reduce their reliance on agencies by providing a ‘bank’ of highly skilled and pre-screened staff who want to work for the NHS.

When you Join the NHSP Bank  you are subject to its terms and conditions, but you’ll enjoy a number of perks.  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.
