Our Service

All tailored to your organisation and departments' unique needs

Implementation

We don't have a one-size-fits-all model.
    Implementation 1
    Evaluate your current ways of working: We work across your organisation, with central functions and clinical directorates to understand how you currently manage temporary staffing, and where your key pain points are.
    Implementation 2
    Collaboratively design your new solution: We work with you to streamline processes, workflows and configure our systems for all teams. We also automate tasks to reduce admin burden and give you back the time and headspace you deserve.
    Implementation 3
    Manage change with extensive communication: We provide thorough communications and engage with your management and clinical teams, so that everyone is aware and ready for any upcoming changes.
    Implementation 4
    Train your teams: Before Patchwork officially launches, we seamlessly migrate all of your data to the system and train your teams in less than two weeks.
    Implementation 5
    Provide extensive ongoing support: Change doesn’t have to be difficult. We’re on hand to support you throughout your journey, and after Patchwork is live, always.

    I honestly can say that using patchwork is a million times better than the old system of contacting the coordinator directly, a laborious back and forth of e-mails followed by submission of locum shift papers and the inevitable anxiety that somewhere along this process your shifts haven’t been paid properly (either over or under) because of the lack of transparency. The app is really intuitive and so easy to use.

    Kieran McCartney Patel, SHO

    Easy to use app, I can quickly see available shifts and book them. Currently signing off shifts by sending a message. Payments are prompt and I can see how much has been earned straight away.

    I am feeling positive about being paid. I used to be reluctant to do locum shifts but now I want to do more as I will be able to track my payments. I have had issues in the past with not getting paid and having to chase payroll. Patchwork is easy to navigate. Creating an account and signing of shifts is straight forward. I like the calendar view and being able to filter shifts. It’s good that lots of people can sign-off shifts
