Nurse Bank Healthcare Assistant

Eduardo Guerra is a healthcare assistant working through our internal Nurse Bank.  Eduardo joined the bank in 2010 and has worked on numerous wards at Bradford Royal Infirmary during the past eight years.

He said: “I work full-time in Leeds so working on the nurse bank in Bradford means I can pick up a shift at BRI maybe once a week.

“I don’t mind which ward I work on, I like them all!

“My wife works here as well, on ward 15, so I can work round her shifts. It means I don’t have any childcare problems.”

The use of temporary staffing is vital to the delivery and quality of patient care at Bradford Teaching Hospitals. Working shifts via our nurse bank offers staff the flexibility to work when they are available and offers an excellent home/life balance.

“I joined the bank because it’s flexible,” added Eduardo. “I book my own shifts through the Employee Online system. It’s very easy to use. I can look at when my wife is working and choose shifts around hers.”

Another benefit of working through the bank is weekly pay.

“I’m paid weekly so I don’t have to wait until the end of the month to be paid!”
