Weekly Payroll

Our weekly payroll service offers greater flexibility and control over employees' finances - a key reason staff choose to work for agencies. It also makes recruiting and retaining staff, and reducing bank and agency costs - key areas of focus in the Long Term Plan - easier to achieve.

NHS SBS Weekly Payroll

Recruiting and retaining staff, and reducing bank and agency costs are key areas of focus in the Long Term Plan.

Being paid weekly, rather than monthly, is popular with employees as it gives them greater flexibility and control over their finances. Weekly payment is often one of the main reasons staff choose to work for agencies.

Weekly PayrollWeekly Payroll was implemented at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals Foundation Trust. Over 18 months, the number of bank hours work carried out by registered nurses almost doubled, at the same time that agency hours reduced. Indeed, the Trust's total spend on agency staff more than halved to £9.6 million in 2017/18.

"We regard our relationship with NHS SBS as a partnership - one where both parties have a common interest to improve services for our staff."

Ashley Judd, Deputy Director of Workforce, NNUH
