Medical Locum Further Competition Awarded


28th March 2014

NHS Commercial Solutions are pleased to announce the award of an alliance wide NHS list of preferred medical locum agencies for our member trusts to use for their medical locum requirements.

In conjunction with East of England Procurement hub, NHS Commercial Solutions carried out a further selection process on agencies listed on the current Crown Commercial Services (formally known as Government Procurement Service) Medical Locum Framework.

Each agency was assessed on a variety of criteria including doctor re-validation, information reporting, booking process and its capacity and capability to fill shifts within the region. Within the process the suppliers were also given an opportunity to send alliance wide prices for our member Trusts to use which resulted in a further reduction on costs of around 4%.

Following this process 16 agencies have been selected for our member Trusts to use which are made up of SMEs, consortiums and large suppliers, with this mix of suppliers we feel confident that they will be able to meet your requirements at the agreed prices.
