NHS National Clinical Staffing Framework

NHS National Clinical Staffing Framework: comprehensive and free to access framework to meet all clinical staffing needs

The NHS now has access, at no charge, to the first National Clinical Staffing framework, supporting compliance with NHS Improvement’s caps on agency staffing pay and charge rates – a major boon to NHS teams fighting to control spiralling agency staffing costs.

Developed by the NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership, the framework gives NHS organisations access to agencies which have been fully and independently audited, and which met the criteria for the cost-effective supply of quality staff. In addition, it facilitates the recruitment of staff to permanent positions.

The four NHS collaborative procurement hubs - NHS Commercial Solutions, NHS North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative, East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub and NHS London Procurement Partnership – have once again worked together under the umbrella of NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership (‘CPP’) to provide a national, not-for-profit solution to this major challenge for the NHS.
