Weekly Payroll

Our weekly payroll service gives employees greater flexibility and control over their finances – often key reasons why staff might choose to work for agencies.

It also helps with recruitment and retention, and the reduction of agency costs – key focus areas in the NHS Long Term Workforce Plan.

  • Greater flexibility and control for employees over their personal finances
  • Cost savings up to 40% for your organisation versus current agency spend
  • Efficient payroll management with streamlined payroll processes
  • Supported set up and management
Weekly Payroll services for the NHS. Two nurses talking by a window in a hospital

Weekly 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
