New streamlined service for the recruitment of clinical and healthcare staff
The NHS Workforce Alliance has launched a framework for the recruitment of temporary, permanent and fixed term clinical and healthcare staff.
The new Clinical and Healthcare Staffing framework from NHS Workforce Alliance offers trusts support in the recruitment of temporary, permanent and fixed term medical and healthcare staffing services through a single framework.
Designed to limit confusion in the market and create a streamlined process, it replaces the Collaborative Procurement Partnership (CPP) National Clinical Staffing and Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Multidisciplinary Temporary Healthcare Personnel frameworks. Both these frameworks are due to expire in February 2021.
Andrew Mumby, NHS LPP Workforce Director, NHS London Procurement Partnership, said:
This is a succinct framework offering which is endorsed by NHS England and NHS Improvement. All medical and healthcare services are in one place, meaning we can offer one set of rate cards and terms and conditions – and also ensure that workers are provided to trusts having completed all the appropriate checks.
The framework offers access to staff in a wide range of disciplines including:
- emergency services
- social healthcare
If your trust is currently using the CPP or CCS framework, you can ask to move to the new framework by completing an access agreement. A series of webinars for trust and suppliers will also be announced before the end of 2020.
Full framework information, including lot details and awarded suppliers, is available on the NHS Workforce Alliance website.
