Royal Free London goes live with payroll app

Royal Free London NHS FT is the first to go live with a new payroll platform, following a collaboration between Earned, a mobile payroll app and NHS SBS.

The Earned technology is being made available through the MySBSPay app to provide additional tools such as to support a ‘pay as you earn’ offering.

The company said: “By offering more flexible and regular payments, which is one of the main attractions of working through an agency, NHS trusts can use Earnd to incentivise more doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals to join their ‘bank’.”

Royal Free London NHS FT is the first NHS organisation to make Earnd available to its 10,000 employees via MySBSPay app. It allows users to view their income in real-time and includes an option to access earnings earlier.

Tasy Warn, Director of Employment Services at NHS SBS, said: “The new NHS People Plan rightly places significant emphasis on the wellbeing of NHS employees. Our new partnership with Earnd is about providing the NHS with easy access to digital technologies, which improve the lives of critical healthcare workers across the country, and save more time and money for patient care.”

Jonathan Lewis, Managing Director Public Sector, Earnd: “This important partnership can help NHS organisations enhance financial wellbeing for a huge number of employees. Fairer finance through free access to pay as it is earned gives staff control of their money and reduces stress for teams delivering exceptional patient care.”
