Powerful partnerships in procurement
We’re working with NHS Procurement in Partnership to provide health workforce services. As the biggest public procurement partnership in the UK, the NHS Workforce Alliance brings together a wealth of trusted procurement and commercial expertise to benefit the NHS.
NHS Procurement in Partnership is a collaboration of 4 procurement hubs:
- NHS Commercial Solutions
- NHS East of England Collaborative Procurement Hub
- NHS London Procurement Partnership
- NHS North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative
The alliance is working together to avoid unnecessary duplication and influence the procurement landscape to empower the NHS to build a sustainable workforce model and address the staffing crisis.
The alliance has a long-term plan to create a whole portfolio of health workforce services that support the recruitment recommendations set out in the NHS Long Term Plan and the NHS People Plan 20/21.
The health workforce frameworks
The alliance’s health workforce frameworks are NHS England and NHS Improvement approved. Tap in to our trusted category advice and support to help you to create and maintain a sustainable workforce.
Experienced international recruitment organisations working to a framework wide standard of quality to help you widen your talent pool and fill permanent clinical healthcare vacancies. Supports the NHS People Plan 20/21.
Staff bank services to help you flexibly manage your clinical and non-clinical temporary workforce, maximise shift fill rates (filled by bank), and reduce your reliance on agency staff. Supports the NHS People Plan 20/21.
This agreement will replace all of the alliance’s existing clinical frameworks.
Its launch has been delayed until late autumn 2020 to avoid placing further administrative demands on you during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
A further 6 month extension has been granted on both Multidisciplinary Temporary Healthcare Personnel (RM3711) and National Clinical Staffing (NHSCPP2015/011). These frameworks will now expire on 7 February 2021.

We’ve selected the best aspects of our existing support and technology frameworks and put them in one place as a joint alliance offer to give NHS trusts compliant ways to source additional services to support health HR and workforce functions.
