NHS Providers Connect is a programme to match NHS member trusts to suppliers who have the solutions they need to move to new models of care and reduce costs. It has the potential to make a significant contribution to the maintenance of an NHS providing care free at the point of need - helping to solve healthcare’s toughest problems.
We are currently working with two partners - Locum's Nest and British Red Cross.
Locum's Nest is the staff bank management web and mobile app that connects healthcare professionals to temporary work in NHS organisations. Cutting out the inefficient, ineffective and expensive agency middleman has proven to reduce its partners’ agency spend by millions each year.
The Nest, the clever technology powering the Locum’s Nest app, revolutionises staff banks with fill-rates exceeding 90% trust-wide resulting in proven agency spend reduction surpassing £2.5m each year. The platform adds zero overheads into the NHS organisation’s HR and Payroll departments with a rollout that only takes a few weeks that comes at zero cost.
The British Red Cross has been delivering health and social care services since the NHS was established. To help people remain independent or to provide practical and emotional support to people in need they provide the following services: provide valuable time-limited support to vulnerable people across the UK, helping them live independently in their own homes.
