NHS Providers Connect is a programme which helps our members build working relationships with external organisations who can provide products and services to support the work they do in moving to new models of care and reducing costs. Each supplier has demonstrated tried and tested solutions to service delivery problems.
We are currently working with two partners - Locum's Nest and the British Red Cross. Both services have demonstrated how their services have worked in NHS trusts. Download the case studies below to find out more.
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 need for expensive agencies. The app revolutionises staff banks with fill-rates exceeding 90% trust-wide, resulting in proven agency spend reduction surpassing £2.5m each year.
The British Red Cross provides innovative solutions that can improve patient flow by preventing unnecessary hospital admissions, re-admissions and delayed transfers of care. In 2017, working across 100 UK Hospitals (including 20 A&E departments), they supported 187,000 to live independently, using person centred services to build resilience and confidence.
