Bank workers are registered with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Nursing and Midwifery Bank and are available to work to fill short term short falls in manpower resource. The service schedules approximately 5000 shifts for both registered and unregistered nursing bank workers per week helping to provide safe, effective, person centred care for patients across Glasgow and Clyde.

What we do

The Nursing and Midwifery Staff Bank service provides a central coordinating booking, recruitment and management service for NHSGGC. The Staff Bank Service is primarily a telephone based service which provides a critical link between NHS bank workers and front line health care professionals commissioning staffing requests for their services to source bank shifts for registered nurses and nursing assistants, which supports quality person centred care.
