GIVING YOU THE POWER TO MAXIMISE YOUR STAFF BANK

Maximisation of your own Bank is critical to the success of your temporary workforce management and control of your budget. But even with the best technology in place, limited time and resources mean that Trusts can struggle to make the most of their Bank.

What are the options?

At Agile, we completely understand how much time an NHS Trust loses when trying to juggle their own Bank availability with shifts going out to recruitment agencies. Imagine how much easier it would be to control it from one central system.

Our Staff Bank Services are delivered to numerous Trusts to ensure the right staff are in post at the right times with a focus on Bank fill first — thus reducing costs, incentivising their workforce, and ensuring safe staffing levels across all departments.

CONSIDERING STAFF BANK SERVICES?

An under-utilised Trust bank?

Over-reliance on agency workers?

Budget pressures?


The right staff Bank service for you will depend on the current make-up of your Bank and the team you have at your disposal. If your Bank is working well and your team just needs a helping hand, our bespoke LMS bank portal and app will give you the visibility you need and the control to improve fill rates whilst managing your budget.  You can reach your Bank at the touch of a button and see shifts being booked.

But if your Bank needs a bit of work and your team is already stretched, then our Managed Staff Bank will provide you with the resources to build your Bank, and a highly experienced team to support you whilst you retain day-to-day hands-on control.

We have Bank contracts in place with 13 NHS Trusts - across a range of solutions which include our LMS bank portal and mobile app, as well as our Neutral Vendor Service

BENEFITS OF OUR STAFF BANK SERVICE

Comprehensive service

We enable you to optimise your own staff bank - with technology to drive efficiencies or a team to help build your bank and reduce the use of agency workers.
