Insourcing opportunities for Consultants with Specialist Registration
Agile Workforce offers a range of integrated workforce solutions to help NHS Trusts develop a sustainable, long-term strategy, resulting in reduced costs and optimised efficiencies. Agile’s bespoke solutions promote and encourage the best in patient care and by selecting Agile’s insourcing model, Trusts can maximise their use of their own facilities to quickly reduce waiting list times and treat more patients.
With an experienced team who have over 25 years’ experience providing medical staffing solutions for the NHS, Agile can offer a unique Insourcing opportunity for Specialist Registered Consultants, which is now available through Holt.
What is Insourcing?
Insourcing is becoming more and more popular in the NHS, due to the increasing number of patients on waiting lists. This has only been exacerbated over the past year, with many specialties being cancelled for months at the peak of coronavirus patient numbers, leading the number of patients waiting over 18 weeks to be over 1.5 million as of January 2021.
Spare time in the week and weekend is often given to the independent sector, but more and more Consultants are choosing to work through Insourcing companies to give their spare time to help out a neighbouring Trust, or even travel further afield if some areas are struggling more than others. Doing weekend work at their own Trust feels like a 7-day week, but at a neighbouring Trust, it is a refreshing change.
The benefits of insourcing
Insourcing is a great way to earn extra money for people in varying situations, in a variety of specialties and it can fit in with your regular schedule - Insourcing can be a very attractive alternative to independent work, and the benefits reach wide. Not only are you financially rewarded similarly to the independent sector, but you’re helping the NHS and 100s of 1000s of patients who you will see in a more time efficient manner. Without insourcing - this wouldn’t be able to happen.
You may also take advantage of the innovative nature of insourcing, as the industry is constantly having to evolve to uphold the standards expected by trusts and patients.
Is insourcing right for you?
Insourcing is the perfect addition to many doctor’s professions. Fitting it in and around your substantive calendar to earn extra money in your spare time, as well as helping the NHS reduce the waiting list times.
If you’re on the specialist register with multiple years of experience in your field and you have some spare time, this could be for you.
