Join the London COVID Bank to build workforce resilience

NHS Trusts have come together to create the London COVID Bank as part of the NHS’ recovery planning. This bank is an online pool of thousands of NHS workers, currently being accessed by over 14 Trusts to fill clinical vacancies and ensure safe staffing levels as we transition from response to recovery; building a resilient workforce to manage upcoming pressures.

We are facing an unprecedented challenge across the NHS. Coming together to pool resources and share access to clinical expertise will help each Trust react more effectively to current and upcoming challenges. By working together, and using technology to make it happen, we can support our incredible healthcare workers in getting to where patients need them most.
