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.

Graphical user interface

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

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

  • Select the shift date(s) and start & finish time.

  • You can request multiple shifts with the same shift pattern (e.g. 8 am-5 pm) simultaneously by selecting multiple dates on the calendar pop-out

  • Optional: Add notes into Worker Notes - these notes will be visible to agencies.

  • 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 Patchwork Agency Hub

Extra Info

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)
