Temporary Workforce Network

The Temporary Workforce Network (formerly know as the  Nursing and Temporary Staffing BVG) has a longstanding and proven track record.

“I have enjoyed being part of the group for the last 4 years as it has enabled me to meet and keep in touch with other members who have an in depth knowledge and understanding  of the unique, complex and demanding job that we all do. I have learnt a lot from the various speakers and it has been reassuring to discover that even though the group members are spread across the country we have the same issues to deal with on a day to day basis and by sharing best practice we can bring new ideas and solutions back to each of our individual Trusts.” – Additional Staffing Manager, Mersey Care NHS Trust

    “Membership of the NPAG Nursing and Temporary staffing group has proven to be instrumental for our organisation in relation to decision making on both policy and process for temporary staffing.

    Regular direct engagement sessions with NHSI, CQC, NHS Employers and the Dept of Health provides an invaluable opportunity to ask topical questions and ensure that operational and strategic leads from the member NHS Trusts are the vanguard for the latest thinking and best practice.

    For me, membership of the group provides clear and tangible benefits through the exchange of ideas and solution oriented strategies with colleagues from across the NHS with the added value of a legal perspective provided by Shakespeare Martineau and I would highly recommend the group to others.”

    “The group has proved invaluable in that it provides a forum where one can meet other NHS Temporary Staffing Managers throughout the UK allowing us to compare our services, share experiences, provide peer support and identify and develop areas of good practice. This can only assist in improving the quality of services we provide.”

    “I found it informative and reassuring to know that as a Temporary Staffing Manager I was not alone in dealing with some of the complex issues that surround temporary staffing.  What I found useful was the resource of other managers that I could call on with questions if required and to understand how they “did it” in their Trusts.  In addition I found the guest speakers were informative with key issues in relation to temporary staffing, I would have no hesitation in recommending this group to others”
