Using NHSP Connect as a direct engagement portal

Before your first shift 

Please complete the following forms before working your first shift to ensure you’re paid correctly. Once completed, please send via email

You will also need to accept the terms and conditions which will be sent directly to you from NHSP Connect. 

How to use NHSP Connect

Getting set up and logging in  

Unlike some other direct engagement portals, you do not require a log in for NHSP Connect as we will submit timesheets on your behalf.  

Submitting timesheets 
When starting work with us, you will receive your timesheet template via email from your consultant. You will need to get this signed at the end of every week by the client and send to us to complete and upload to NHSP Connect by 5pm Tuesday

Top tips: Before sending us your timesheet, ensure you’ve completed all the following sections correctly: working hours, breaks, and client name. It is essential that we receive timesheets in black and white, in a clear landscape format; if timesheets are not in a clear format, this may result in a delay in your pay. 

 You’ll be paid directly by the trust, and payment is made the Friday after the week is consolidated as per the example below:

  • Week 1 = Working week
  • Week 2 = Data consolidated (Wednesday)
  • Week 3 = Payment made by Friday 


Accessing payslips  

You can access your payslips via the MySBSPay app. When downloading the app for the first time, you’ll need the following details in order to register for an account:

  • The email address we have on file for you
  • Your NHSP Connect employee number

If we have multiple email addresses on file for you, or you are unsure of your NHSP Connect number, please contact us.

As part of the trust’s temporary worker recruitment process, all new temporary workers and existing NHS employees must complete this questionnaire and send it back to the email address on the form to see if they are eligible for the NHS pension scheme.
