Skills for Health Webinar – A Journey from Doctors Compliance to Operational eRostering


By Skills for Health | 19 October 2021

With over 350 roles in the NHS, we have a comprehensive understanding of variety of workforce roles, workloads and competencies. Each workforce group has a specific demand and too often, systems do not cater for the breadth and depth of these roles. We recognise every staff member deserves to have a system that works in line with their own individual contract and terms of employment.

Custom Rostering System (CRS) is our newly developed workforce planning solution designed to support all healthcare professionals maintain compliant staff schedules and improve patient care delivery. By combining our two best-in-class systems, DRS and Realtime Rostering, CRS allows workforce managers to seamlessly create and manage short and long-term staff rosters for any staff group, maintain compliant staffing levels, and ensures teams are in the right place, at the right time.
