Study Day: Electronic self-rostering for nurses and midwives – Bringing joy to work

Join our study day at The Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust as they share their journey to improving staff engagement, staff satisfaction and improving retention, as recognised by NHS Improvement.

The trust rolled out electronic self-rostering to the ICU team in January 2018 and then implemented 32 inpatient areas from September 2018 to May 2019.

Delegates will hear directly from the hospital director of nursing, nursing teams and the lead nurse for e-Roster and SafeCare as they give insight on how the use of electronic self-rostering has brought joy to work by offering staff greater flexibility, improved work-life balance and supported staff retention.

Why attend?

  • Discover how the Trust overcame the initial challenges to self-rostering to successfully improve staff engagement, turnover rates, vacancy rates and sickness levels
  • Understand how self-rostering is a team approach and that by engaging both managers and staff is critical to producing greater roster flexibility, whist maintaining a safe, fair and effective roster
  • See how Self-rostering is not a one-size fits-all model, as different areas work in different ways
  • Share in the tips to enabling successful self-rostering
