What is the Workforce Flexi-Pool?

The purpose of our Workforce Flexi-Pool is to help to provide cover for all practices in North Tyneside when they are short staffed.  However, we know there are times that cover provided through staffing agencies can prove to be more of a hindrance instead of help to practices.

That’s why at TyneHealth, it’s our mission to fill shortages with skilled staff that are familiar with North-Tyneside and understand the referral pathways well.  The Workforce Pool currently consists of:

  • Receptionists
  • Secretaries
  • Health Care Assistants
  • Practice Nurses
  • Advanced Nurse Practitioners
  • General Practitioners

How Does the Workforce Flexi-Pool Work?

This service is available to each of the 24 GP Practices in North-Tyneside, and the cover we provide ranges from a single day to provide a boost to capacity, up to many months to help with long term absences of regular practice staff.

Practices  are able to request cover for all of our roles through a number of means. These sessions are then advertised on our rota platform, Lantum, where members of our Workforce Pool can apply for them at their leisure.

We are also able to offer more specialised clinics such as:

  • Ear irrigation
  • Cervical smears
  • Long term condition reviews
  • Vaccinations – Flu, Covid-19, Travel etc…
