Citrus built the LocumTap platform (now re-branded Patchwork Health) deployed at several NHS hospitals. Patchwork software provides a one-stop solution for managing the temporary staffing requirements at hospitals, and reduces the barrier of entry for clinicians to book and manage their locum shifts. Patchwork connects clinicians with shifts in ways that:

  • Over 1 million hours worth of shifts booked with LocumTap & Patchwork
  • Saves the National Health Service millions
  • Keeps medics happy
  • Means a doctor is there when you need one most
