 Staff Bank News Letter November 2021


Dear colleague,


 Firstly can I pass on my thanks and appreciation  for your hard work and contribution to our services over the past 18 months. I appreciate that many of you have substantive roles as well as providing us with additionality. The ability for us to call on you and keep our service flexible is  a great strength of our bank in supporting our services across Acute, Mental Health and Community Services. We have been increasing our bank cohort to help us continue to support Covid-19 activity and plan for our winter capacity.


We continue to see demands on our services and we want to ensure our services run with minimum disruption whilst COP26 is in our city. A significant number of you have already taken shifts for the next couple of weeks and this is welcomed for our planning purposes. We know that transportation might be more challenging and we will be working with all our services to ensure everyone can get to work using all our Board policies to support you and your colleagues. Where possible we are asking you to consider your availability and support the take up of shifts, mainly across our emergency departments and support teams. We anticipate increased demand as a result of COP26, with a particular emphasis on 1 and 2nd November, and 5 and 6th November when the Leaders Summit and protest marches take place.


If you are able to provide some additional availability during this period this would be welcomed.


You can book available shifts directly, 24 hrs a day, using the Employee On Line system via the following link - You can also call us on 0141 278 2555 to advise if your availability and we can arrange to amend shifts start or end times to allow full flexibility for you. The contact centre lines are open 7 days a week from 8am to 8.30pm.


Thank you again for your consideration as well as your ongoing support and commitment. We value the input of each and every one of our Bank staff and all of your hard work through these challenging times.


Anne MacPherson

Director of Human Resources

Successful HEPMA pilot paves the way for GGC-wide rollout

Hepma Request Form  can be downloaded from HERE

Hepma Newsletter April 2021

HEPMA is a new digital system that will replace the paper drug chart (kardex) for inpatient areas across NHSGGC. Doctors and other prescribers will use HEPMA to prescribe medicines for inpatients and nurses will use HEPMA to carry out drug rounds and record the administration of medicines to patients.


Clinical staff will be required to complete a concise eLearning package on LearnPro in order to be given access to the HEPMA system. The HEPMA Facilitator Team will provide support and supplemental training to staff “on the floor” in clinical areas as the rollout progresses. It is important to complete the HEPMA Learnpro module as soon as possible. You cannot get access to HEPMA without completing the appropriate module. See attached for quick reference guide and most recent newsletter.


If you do not currently have an NHSGGC Network account please get in touch with the Staff Bank for assistance at [email protected]
