Within the region, the demand for services continues to grow, whilst budgets become increasingly tighter, an experience not exclusive to the South Yorkshire area. In order to provide high quality services, it has become increasingly necessary to ensure that all resources are used effectively and support the delivery of effective care.
Liaison Workforce supported the organisation’s aims of managing Medical and NMNC temporary spend, with a focus on growing the internal bank and reducing agency spend, which has resulted in an overall lower spend across these staffing groups. Despite the challenges created by the Covid-19 pandemic, the Trust has seen a 25% reduction in
Consultant spend, and a 21% reduction in Medical and Dental spend between 2019 and 2020, as a result of the implemented solutions, saving over £400,000 in agency and bank net savings.
The mii Flexible Workforce solution has provided the Trust with extra control and transparency which allows their management teams to challenge every pound spent, ensuring the best value for money.
In addition to utilising mii Bank and mii Agency Management to manage the workforce, Liaison Workforce provides essential workforce intelligence, which enables both HR and management teams to make evidence-based decisions, allowing for continual improvements to be made to the benefit of both staff and patients.
The Trust has and continues to benefit from full systems training provided to all users, pre and post implementation, along with dedicated system and payroll support.
They also benefit from improved agency management via agency engagement specialists, who provide dedicated support for when candidates are sourced for those roles in where there is a national shortage.
Management information and bespoke workforce intelligence is provided to theTrust on a regular basis. Access to regional and national benchmarking is also provided, along with a bespoke KPI which allows managers to focus on key areas with the ability to drill-down into further granular details.
The TempRE App allows workers to submit timesheets on the go, which has helped with reduction of paper and eliminated duplication.
