Workforce and Staffing

We work under the banner of the Workforce Alliance, in conjunction with other public sector collaborative procurement organisation. Our NHSEI approved routes to market ensure we can help to support our customers with workforce retention, and temporary and permanent recruitment. The People Plan 20/21 talks about a new focus on recruitment to make the most of the current high profile of the NHS through domestic and international recruitment and our support has been designed to meet recommendations set out in the plan. 

Please see frameworks that are covered below.  Each page is available to all users and provides an overview with summary information.

NHS Commercial Solutions (NHSCS) and NHS Workforce Alliance are accredited framework providers under NHS England’s Commercial Efficiencies & Optimisation Programme - Framework Host Accreditation.

Our frameworks enable call-offs through either mini competitions or direct award, and should be called off in line with Public Contract Regulations 2015 guidance regarding award of contracts under framework agreements, which can be viewed here.
