NHS SBS one of UK’s best place tech workplaces

NHS Shared Business Services (NHS SBS) has been named as one of the best places to work in tech.

The honour comes from Great Place to Work and follows a time of significant organic growth, according to the health service.

This period has seen more than 300 jobs created and turnover pushing north of £100m.

The best workplaces in tech list has been running for six years and is based on the anonymous submissions of 100,000 people plying their trade in the UK technology sector.

NHS SBS’s managing director, Erika Bannerman, said: "Nowhere is the transformative power of technology more evident than in healthcare. Huge strides have been made in clinical tech, saving countless lives.

"Our vision is to bring that same transformation to NHS corporate services such as purchasing and payroll. We know that saving money saves lives, so by enabling the entire NHS to be digital-first, with all the efficiencies that brings, we're making the lives of patients and staff better.”

This comes just a few weeks after NHS SBS landed a finance team of the year award for its data transition during the integrated care overhaul in the middle of 2022.

NHS SBS’s head of workforce solutions, Mike Tresise, wrote about data solutions for the health service’s workforce in our online magazine earlier this year.
