Patchwork has transformed our staff bank! The trust has reduced its agency spend by significantly improving our bank fill rates. Our service managers have better control over their locum activity, and the clinicians love the app too.Rob Hodgkiss, CEO
We are delighted to work with Patchwork! The project support provided by the Patchwork implementation team has been first class, as has their engagement with stakeholders throughout the Trust. Their comprehensive software and service has helped to reduce agency and administration costs, whilst at the same time making our systems much easier to use for our staff and doctorsAdam Cragg, Head of Recruitment & Employment Services
I’ve found Patchwork to be very effective, in particular their expertise, knowledge of the market and opportunities for savings. And especially, customer responsiveness. The support they offer to implement Patchwork in Trusts is clearly fundamental in success and sets them apart from other companies. The product overall is excellent and has clear results.Andy Small, Workforce Transformation Lead
