NHS Trusts are accessing Patchwork’s COVID19 solution to manage staffing requirements

As healthcare workers, we are acutely aware of the impact this public health crisis is having on our workforce. At this critical time, we have been assessing how we can provide the greatest support to our NHS during this pandemic.

During the peak of the pandemic, we are offering all NHS Trusts free access to Patchwork's COVID19 bank solution to manage your COVID19 temporary staffing requirements at scale. 

You will also have access to our extensive network of locum clinicians, who use our app to connect directly with staff banks as well as reach over 75,000 clinicians via our partnership with the British Medical Journal.

We have naturally put aside all commercial interests and are here to help the NHS cope with this Pandemic. Everything stated in here is ready for use immediately. 

Our priority right now is to support your frontline rota team and ensure safe staffing levels.

Key things you need to know:

  • Patchwork’s solution can be live at your Trust within 5 days for any staff groups

  • It takes less than an hour to train your temporary staffing team to use the system - all via a video call (or face to face if you prefer)

  • Our dedicated COVID19 24/7 support team will help your teams with BAU tasks, including broadcasting vacancies and activating doctors on the system

  • Our tech-focused solution automates processes, reducing the burden on your administrators

  • Our web-based system can be accessed from anywhere (especially for your team members having to work from home)

  • Access to tens of thousands of clinicians from our targeted adverts in the BMJ (our partners) and on social media

We are also expanding our offering with our partners Wagestream so that you also can pay clinicians instantly and automatically provide any workers with Statutory Sick Pay, or reimburse volunteers free of charge for both Trust and worker.

Please get in touch at hello@patchwork.health and we will quickly reach out to you for immediate action.

These are extraordinary times that need extraordinary measures – as a group of clinicians and NHS managers we want to help.

Throughout, our team is on hand at all times to support our Trust partners. For any general queries, please contact our team at help@patchwork.health.
