NHS permanent HCA - doing bank on other wards? Watch
I have a permanent job on a ward and asked to be released to bank so I could pick up extra shifts. Since I asked i've accepted a place to study nursing so I kind of want to try out other wards to get a bit of extra experience, even A&E. I'm just not sure how to go about it, I don't want to just book and turn up and then them realise I don't have the same skills of their permanent HCA's. Should I ask to do some supernumerary or something? I've had a look on the system and there's quite a few shifts going in A&E so i'd quite like to have a go. Anyone got any advice for me?
