Over the past year, North Cumbria University Hospitals Trust has reduced its agency spend by £5 million. This podcast takes you through the trust's journey as Amanda Dunkley and Christine Brereton outline the reasons for such high temporary staffing spend and their systemic approach to tackling it.

Find out how Amanda and Christine established an in-house agency team, the organisation's move from use of a master vendor to their own in-house solution and how these steps have improved the quality of care.

You can find out more about reducing agency spend from our dedicated agency workers section of the website.
