To request a shift for your department use the Request Shift page on the Patchwork Hub (screenshot below). Follow the below steps to learn how. Remember, any shift you request on the Patchwork Hub will be reflected in the Patchwork mobile app for clinicians.

  • Select hourly or sessional

  • Select the site, department and reason for booking (e.g. vacancy)

  • Select the staff group, grade and the number of shifts required

  • If the shift has been agreed with a clinician outside of Patchwork, assign the clinician from the dropdown list. If the shift is vacant, skip this step

  • Select the shift date(s) and start & finish time.
    You can request multiple shifts with the same shift pattern (e.g. 8am-5pm) simultaneously by selecting multiple dates on the calendar pop out

  • Optional: Add notes into Worker Notes - these notes will be visible to the Clinician in their mobile app.

  • Optional: Add notes into Admin notes to communicate information on the shift - only Users who have access to the Hub will be able to view these.

  • Review the shift details and once you are happy, click submit shift. The shift will now be visible in the clinician mobile app

Extra Info

Shift rate will be pulled through automatically when the shift grade is selected. If required, the default rate can be amended using the override default rate toggle (account permission dependent).

The cost centre is automatically pulled through when the department is selected. Use the Override Default toggle to change the cost centre (e.g. cross-cover between departments).
