SWL Collaborative Staff Bank

A new way to work: SW London Collaborative Staff Bank for Nursing

The South West London Collaborative Staff Bank project is a collaboration of the four Acute Providers in South West London (Kingston, St Georges, Croydon and Epsom and St Helier) and South West London Mental Health NHS Trust. The scope of the collaboration has been focused on general nursing, Band 2 and 5s only, with the potential for broader application across specialist Nursing, Admin & Clerical, AHPs and Medics, depending on successful delivery within the general nursing sector.

Using technology called CloudStaff, you will be able to:

  • See all available shifts at least four weeks before the roster starts through your smartphone or computer (because you are already registered and cleared to work on the bank)
  • Simply book shifts on line or through your smartphone, report for the shift and be quickly paid for the work done by the trust where you work.

Allocate, our App provider, have been on site rolling out their new ‘Me’ interactive user application (app). Much like EmployeeOnline you will be able to view vacant bank duties, log annual leave, view team rosters etc. ‘Me’ will also provide you the access to book the vacant bank duties through the app instead of calling the bank office.

Participation in the shared bank is of course voluntary and if you chose to join, all you will need to do is to simply download the free smartphone app and complete some simple forms so we can share your details with the trusts where you are interested in working bank shifts. Please note this is only available to you if you are substantively employed in any of the five Trusts listed above.

If you are an active Bank Worker and interested in working in other Trusts within this collaboration, (St Georges, South West London Mental Health and Epsom and St Helier) you will need to complete a few forms so that we can register your details to allow the other Trusts to pay you without delay.

Please see below the relevant forms, it is worth nothing that there is a 10 day turnaround for processing these documents. The completed forms must be sent electronically to our Staff Bank Office at, failure to submit these forms may delay your pay.

Please read the related documents ‘Joining the South West London Collaborative Bank’ and if you have any questions please send these to the Staff Bank office on
