As a care home manager, we understand how important your time is in ensuring that patient care is at the highest level and that your team of permanent and bank staff are fulfilled and content at work.

The workforce crisis within care has been reported on widely so much so that the government are in their second year of running the Made with Care campaign. A nationwide recruitment campaign for carers, we’ve highlighted the benefits of this here, and the resources available to you.

Handling all of this is difficult, so we ask you, what could you do with an extra 8 hours every week?

With our bank management system, we could save you this time due to the automation of many manual processes such as rota and leave management along with staff expenses. With an extra 8 hours, you could devote this time to the professional development of your team and patient care. To tackle the workforce crisis we’ve put together multiple blogs on strategies for doing so and the benefits of retaining staff and reducing reliance on agency staff that are often extremely expensive.

We’ve highlighted some of the benefits of using Locate’s bank management platform below and what the process would look like if you were interested in finding out more.
