The South West London Collaborative Staff Bank

What is the South West London Collaborative Staff Bank?

A new way to work, NHS Trusts in South West London have created a ‘virtual’ Staff Bank.

Used to access shifts at your own Trust and the other Trusts participating, you will be able to view vacant bank duties, helping staff to increase their work/life balance.

Offering a greater choice and flexibility, in a way that suits individuals, joining is simple and entirely voluntary. To see what it’s all about, watch this short film.

You can book shifts by downloading the newly introduced free ‘Me’ mobile app onto your phone, or via desktop on your computer at www.allocateme.com.

The ‘Me’ App is about reducing reliance on agency workers, therefore reducing costs and increasing the quality of care to patients by enabling staff across ALL Trusts to cover vacant shifts.

How does it work?

To complete the process, simply follow the steps below:

1.  Download the Me app and register to get started. Sign up with your email address

2. Complete the following forms. Once complete, please return to the Staff Bank office

Starter checklist
Personal details
Pension questionnaire – Epsom and St HelierKingston

3. Book a shift – you can view and book shifts through your Me app.

It’s as easy as that!

PLEASE NOTE that the collaborative bank is only available if you are an active employee in any of the included Trusts and there is a ten day turn around for processing these documents. Failure to submit the forms may cause a delay in your payment. You will be paid by the Trust you work for.
