Nurse Bank

Weekly pay for bank shifts, free clinical skills training and a bonus loyalty scheme to boost your income are just some of the benefits of joining our Nurse Bank.

Working on our nurse bank gives fantastic opportunities for professional and personal development. Our practice & development team delivers highly-regarded and well-established programmes tailored to the learning and training needs of our nurses.

We offer free clinical skills training to all our bank nurses. If you work in the private sector or a non-acute nursing role, working on our bank will help you to keep your skills up to date – as well as learning new ones.

You can get new experience on different wards and departments. We have a huge variety of nursing posts including general nursing, emergency care, midwifery or any of our areas of specialism which include stroke, cardiac, vascular and renal.

You can choose the shifts that fit in with your personal circumstances and family or study commitments.

When you work on our bank, you can access NHS staff discounts and pension scheme as and join the newly-refurbished gym and swimming pool on the hospital site run by Trilogy Leisure.

HCA bank

To apply to work on our HCA bank, visit the NHS Jobs website

If you’re a health care assistant, a care support worker or a student nurse with health care experience you can register with our HCA bank for flexible work opportunities suited to your skills and competency levels - and you can book the shifts that suit you!

Watch our video to hear what our HCAs say about the benefits of bank working:


Bank HCAs are employed by us, not an agency, and the more HCAs we have registered with our bank, the more consistent we can be in delivering the best possible care to our patients.

We have a huge variety of people registered on our HCA bank. For the most part, they are our own HCA employees who like the option to work extra shifts on top of their rostered hours as well those who prefer the variety and flexibility of working only for the bank.

For others who are hoping for a career as a nurse, midwife or therapist, working as a HCA on the bank allows them to learn essential skills that are transferable across departments and wards while bolstering their CV.

We also welcome HCAs who have a job elsewhere, such as in the private care sector, and chose to work some shifts with us. You don’t need to have previously worked in a hospital to work for our bank as long as you have healthcare experience - just talk to our bank team to see where your skills can be put to great use.

Bank shifts are paid weekly and Bank HCAs can access the NHS pension scheme and join the newly-refurbished gym and swimming pool on the hospital site run by Trilogy Leisure.
