Staff Portability

Alongside partners, we have created a voluntary Staff Portability Framework 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 framework, 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 critical service need.  So far, 28 partners have signed up (all three Leeds NHS Trusts, Leeds City Council, multiple GP Practices as well as the GP Confederation and one voluntary organisation) and the framework has been mobilised 4 times.
If you would like to sign up or find out more about the framework, please contact leedsoneworkforce@nhs.net.
