NBT eXtra: Our Trust's bank

NBT eXtra works within our Trust to fill temporary gaps in the workforce with existing staff or through trusted external suppliers.

Being part of our bank allows healthcare professionals to adjust their shift patterns to better fit their lifestyle. Our shifts can be booked up to six weeks in advance, or at late notice, and can suit your childcare arrangements or your substantive position with us. 

You'll receive an induction and support to complete orientation shifts, before starting work within some of our major specialties. These can include intensive care, emergency medicine, surgery, medirooms, stroke, and many other areas.

Which staffing groups do NBT eXtra support?

Our internal bank offers a variety of shifts across staffing groups, including:

  • Nursing
  • Medical
  • Catering
  • Domestics
  • Portering
  • Administration and clerical

Can I plan my schedule in advance when I work for NBT eXtra?

Yes, our shifts are bookable for up to six weeks in advance, so you can plan childcare or other responsibilities with these block bookings.

Can I book last minute shifts?

Yes, we can accomodate last minute bookings on shifts throughout the Trust, facilitated by our dedicated booking centre.

Do I have to stay within my clinical area if I book shifts through the bank?

Not necessarily. Our bank can be a good way in which you can build your experience in different areas and on different wards. We encourage you to pick up shifts that not only suit your lifestyle, but that boost your knowledge and understanding.

However, there are some shifts which require a certain level of experience, such as shifts within the emergency department or within our intensive care unit. If you are an experienced nurse in these areas, you may have the opportunity to book shifts with a competitive pay rate.
