Building a flexible staff pool for Cambridge & Peterborough Training Hub


Following the launch of NHSE funding for ICSs to invest in staff pools, we’re pleased to be partnering with Cambridge & Peterborough to create a system-wide, multidisciplinary, flexible staff pool.

Cambridge & Peterborough chose to invest the NHSE funding with Lantum after seeing the potential that our platform offers. As well as giving practices access to a flexible pool of staff who can be booked wherever they're needed, it will also help them to:

  • Build resilience
  • Save money
  • Reduce time spent on admin

Jo Oldfield, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Training Hub Manager, said:

“We are delighted to share the news that we are partnering with Lantum to provide Cambridgeshire and Peterborough with a multidisciplinary staff bank. This exciting opportunity will provide greater support to practice capacity needs and for the wider workforce.”

The bank will be used by 88 Practices across 21 Primary Care Networks and 2 Integrated Care Partnerships. As well as making the bank more valuable and effective, expanding across these staff types will also mean that more staff can enjoy the benefits Lantum offers, including:

  • Access to more working opportunities – Clinical staff will be able to easily access additional sessional work across the CCG, with notifications about opportunities that match their skills and location.

  • Quick invoicing and next-day payments – Lantum automatically generates invoices for shifts completed, and clinicians can opt-in to enjoy free next-day payments through Rocketpay.

  • More visibility and control – Staff will be able to use the Lantum app to see and manage their bookings, and to quickly and easily share information such as clinical compliance documents or qualifications with Practice Managers.

Melissa Morris, Founder and CEO, Lantum said:

“We can’t wait to partner with the C&P System and stakeholders to transform their Primary Care workforce. We are off to a great start working hand in glove with the leadership team there, and we’re delighted to be playing a part in offering their workforce more flexibility across the System.”
