Working Shifts at Bolton NHS Foundation Trust


Trust ID Swipe Card

It is not mandatory for NHS Professionals Bank Members to have a Trust ID swipe card. However, if you are working regular shifts in any location, you can ask the manager to arrange for you to have a Trust ID swipe card.

Mandatory System Access Training for Clinical Roles

The following is required for all Nursing & Midwifery, Patient Support Services and Allied Health Professionals Bank Members who wish to work at Bolton.

Before you can work any shifts at Bolton, you are required to complete some Trust specific EPR and Patient Track online training. NHS Professionals will request an IT Network Account and log ins for the training platform for all new Bank Members.

Your log in details will be created by Trust IT. You will need to visit the local Client Services office located on the Ground Floor, Dowling House, Royal Bolton Hospital, Minerva Road, BL4 0JR to collect a letter containing your log in details. You do not need to book an appointment to collect this. 

  • Details of the training you need to complete including the web address will be contained in the letter along with your username and password. 
  • Once you have completed the modules, please take a screenshot of the completed training, and send it to bolton@nhsprofessionals.nhs.uk.
  • NHS Professionals will then update the completed training on your NHS Professionals profile which will allow you to see and book shifts.

IT Network Access

For all non-clinical roles, IT access will be requested on a case-by-case basis. If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact bolton@nhsprofessionals.nhs.uk or call 03330150348.
