The NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership National Clinical Staffing Framework Agreement:
The NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership's National Clinical Staffing framework provides access to temporary and permanent staff for a wide range of clinical roles, including:
- Medical and Dental Staff
- Nursing and Midwifery
- Other clinical staff, including Allied Health Professionals and Health Science Staff.
The Clinical Staffing framework has three lots:
Lot 1 - Employment Business – Under this lot agencies supply temporary workers and pay the worker.
Lot 2 - Employment Agency – Agencies supply either temporary or permanent workers to the trust, but the trust pays the worker, with the agency receiving a commission fee.
Lot 3 - Neutral Vendor - The supplier acts as a neutral party. They do not supply their own staff, but instead manage the supply chain.
