Flexible Workforce Pool

Our Flexible Workforce Pool aims to support General Practice and improve staffing resilience. We currently offer a GP, ANP, Practice and Registered Nurse Pools to GP surgeries across Herefordshire. This offers our staff the flexibility in their career whether that is ad-hoc or regular shifts.

The service runs along several other services within Herefordshire General Practice giving our clinicians the chance of portfolio roles. The pools offer face-to-face and remote sessions for both salaried and locum members of staff, with options to work in and out of hours. 

Please see the video opposite where Medical Director Dr Lauren Parry and Dr Frankie Howells talk around the opportunities of working flexibly across the county.

What is the Flexible Workforce Pool?

The pool includes a range of NHS professionals who have flexibility and understanding of the county. It can be accessed by practices to provide a stable workforce of clinicians for Herefordshire General Practice

The pool can be used by practices to fulfil last minute leave requirements or to support longer term need - with the potential to offer clinicians permanent jobs, where desired. It provides practices with the opportunity to build relationships with pool members as well as reducing the burden of accessing temporary staff.
