Bradford District Care Trust: Multi-disciplinary bank and agency solution

Bradford District Care provides high quality mental health, community and learning disability services for a diverse population of over half a million residents situated at the foothills of the Pennines. They have partnered with Retinue since 2014 to manage their challenging temporary staffing requirements.

Challenged with a requirement to find new CIP savings, Bradford recognised that partnering with a neutral vendor would provide the dedicated and experienced support needed to reduce agency spend.

Solution & Outcomes:
After implementing a neutral vendor managed service for Bradford and releasing 28% in cash releasing savings from existing agency spend, the Trust requested support for a managed bank. We successfully TUPE’d all workers to the managed staff bank, before growing it by 32% within a year.

100% of locums are engaged directly, and a new model of nurse bank has been created to further improve fill rates outside of agencies, whilst continuing to reduce cost for the Trust

"Over the last 6 years our partnership with Retinue has enabled us to transform our temporary staffing
recruitments into a more stable, dependable service than previous, allowing the Trust to produce significant savings of agency expenditure while providing and maintaining a high quality service to our patients. Since the Covid – 19 outbreak in March 2020, Retinue have been proactively engaged in our workforce planning response, maintaining the line of communication with the supply chain to ensure that changing resource needs are anticipated in advance and sudden peaks in demand were met."
