Kettering General Hospital Trust


Set in the beautiful Northamptonshire countryside, Kettering General Hospital Trust has a reputation for being a friendly, caring place to work and the staff bank has a big part to play in filling in the gaps in shifts across the trust.

Great for the trust, great for the staff

As a specialist in setting up and managing staff banks for NHS trusts, the knowledge and investment which Bank Partners can bring will help save the trust money by reducing the need to hire staff from expensive agencies.

We do this by making sure it’s as easy as possible for NHS workers to join the bank and book shifts; by planning ahead for times or specialisms we know will see high demand and by recruiting into the bank from both Kettering’s current workforce and further afield.

We know that all the current bank staff are all doing an amazing job and we’re looking forward to working with them all to provide even better service and support.
