Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust has been working in partnership with Medacs Healthcare and together we have been able to successfully implement a Managed Service which has helped us release clinical time whilst giving us assurance of the quality of agency workers and help comply with NHSI agency guidelines. By working collaboratively Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust and Medacs Healthcare have been able to deliver significant reductions in agency costs. Having successfully proved the concept with in-patient nursing agency, the partnership are working together to roll out the Managed Service to the remainder of community services and other staff groups.
Gareth Baker, Director of People & Strategy, Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust
We brought Medacs Healthcare in three years ago to work in collaboration with us on making significant savings to Cardiff and Vale Health Board on locum expenditure, whilst also ensuring clinical safety by delivering on high fill rates, utilising their supply chain and consistently delivering reliable governance at all times. So far this partnership has been successful and we are now considering what project we can join forces on to deliver more efficiencies to Cardiff and Vale Health Board.
Hilary Sharp, Senior Medical Workforce Manager, Cardiff and Vale University Health Board
A lot of the other companies that were bidding were not particularly in that market and don't really understand the world of medical locums. Medacs Healthcare does. It's their business. They have been proactive, responsive and really supportive in terms of setting up the whole service in the first place... we've just got a really good, open, honest relationship.
Karen Swindley, Workforce and Education Director, Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Medacs Healthcare significantly relieved our staffing challenges, providing additional nurses and HCAs, managing onboarding and achieving excellent fill rates. This vital support allowed us to keep additional beds available, avoid using high cost agencies and safeguard patient care over the winter months
Simone Anderton, Deputy Director of Nursing and Quality, Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Medacs Healthcare's RPO solution has certainly played a part in the Trust coming out of financial special measures by helping us to reduce our locum medical spend
Monica Green, Director of HR, East Sussex Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust
Medacs Healthcare has helped us to transform our recruitment process, significantly reducing the average time to hire and supporting us to realise a number of cost savings through the efficiency programme. We now have a sustainable model and the right processes in place to ensure we continue to recruit the support workers we need to consistently deliver care in all our regional locations.
