South London Partnership’s (SLP) three trusts — Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, South West London and St George’s Mental Health NHS Trust — wanted to improve career and development opportunities and working environments for clinical staff.

This was a core goal of its nursing development programme. But staff moving to new permanent roles or secondments in different SLP trusts faced a long wait and delayed start — not uncommon in the NHS. They were not therefore motivated to stay within SLP trusts. 

Time taken to fill roles can affect care continuity and become costly, with agency cover often required. The aim was to offer staff flexibility to move easily, quickly and promote SLP trusts as attractive employers.
