"Previously paperwork took up to a week to finalise, and additional off duty nursing timesheets a fortnight, in some instances. Now with Realtime, administration time has been reduced significantly and will allow us to spend more time to care for patients, allowing the organisation to be more patient-centred."

Save time and money

As the Sector Skills Council for Health, we're immersed within the NHS and truly understand the real-world challenges. Whatever rostering platform you're using, we have the system and compliance expertise to help you roster effectively for tomorrow, not just today.

As a trusted provider of total workforce solutions across the UK's healthcare system, Realtime Rostering has been developed with the real-world challenges that are faced by leaders in workforce management.

Realtime Rostering helps healthcare organisations manage shift preferences, sick leave, holidays and other workforce challenges in one, easy-to-use platform. E-rostering can help reduce agency spend, saving valuable time and money.

Already compliant with the new 2016 Junior Doctor Contract, DRS4 (Doctors Rostering System) allows managers to check rota compliance against the Working Time Regulations (WTR), and flag up where and why a given work pattern fails current guidelines. 

Rostering for a safer and more efficient environment

Realtime Rostering seamlessly integrates with third party systems (ESR, HR, payroll, time and bank/locum facilities). This essential tool helps save valuable administration time, and ensure payroll is managed effectively and accurately. Plus our partnership with award-winning bank/locum app Patchwork, means managing locum staff is even easier, reducing the heavy burden of agency spend.

Based on the successes of e-rostering systems to date, many trusts are already reaping the benefits of a solution which has been produced by healthcare workforce experts, to ensure staff are deployed in the most productive way - and that ultimately a more balanced view of people and financial performance is made available across the board.

Furthemore, as a not-for-profit organisation, we are continually finding ways to re-invest in rostering and workforce management to support the UK's healthcare sector. In 2019, we re-invested into further development of Realtime Rostering, and the rewards are already being realised by our customers throughout the NHS.

With NHS budgets requiring greater efficiencies than ever before, e-rostering is proving crucial in helping trusts nationwide maximise on resources by increasing visibility across the board and ultimately preventing understaffing through better forward planning.
