Flexible Resource Pools

The agreement is approved by NHS Improvement and NHS England - the first bank agreement to get such an endorsement

Flexible resource pools, or staff banks, are pools or groups of workers managed flexibly and proactively to make the most efficient use of an organisation’s workforce.

Through this framework you can access services to help you flexibly manage your workforce, including the setting up of a new staff bank, or the complete outsourcing of your bank’s management, to maximise shift fill rates in the most efficient way possible. The Workforce Alliance Flexible Resource Pool framework helps you do this quickly and easily.

The customer chooses the staff groups covered by the bank, and within these any grade or specialty can be requested. The groups are:

• Doctors, consultants, dentists and GPs
• Allied health professionals, health science services and emergency services personnel
• Nursing and midwifery personnel
• Non-medical and non-clinical
The framework focuses on providing staff bank services to NHS contracting authorities but is open to
all UK public sector bodies with staff bank needs.
