Staff Portability

Alongside partners, we have created a voluntary Staff Portability Agreement that allows for short-term sharing of staff across health and social care organisations in Leeds, enabling the sector to take a collective view of resourcing, and work together as a citywide group to respond to changing demand.

By signing up to the agreement, member organisations can work with diverse partners to enable skilled and experienced staff to work in different settings for a short period of time, when there is a critical service need.  So far, 30 partners have signed up, including all three Leeds NHS Trusts, Leeds City Council, the GP Confederation, as well as multiple GP Practices and voluntary organisations.

For further information about the agreement, you can view / download the Staff Portability presentation via the button below.
