We recently implemented in London North West Hospital, read about how they found the experience here.
Don’t take our word for it.
The layout showing all the shifts coming up in the next 4-6 months is really helpful and helps with interpersonal planning as I have 4 young children so it allows me to plan childcare way in advance in order to undertake the work. Regular notification of URGENT shifts available and the use of the red marker to highlight these is excellent. In summary, using the patchwork App motivates me to take on Locum work at York due to the continued virtual support and when I did have a problem booking shifts I contacted the central office in London and the administrators were super friendly and fixed the problem within an hour so it's really reassuring that I can contact the central office if there is a problem.Deborah Goldfield, SHO
