Health resourcing agreements update

We are developing a new suite of commercial agreements to replace the existing health resourcing and staff bank agreements, which are due to expire in 2019. We are currently referring to this strategy as Health Sector Resourcing (HSR).

In developing our strategy we have been engaging with suppliers and customers to establish what a flexible and comprehensive health resourcing solution to the public sector should look like. For example, should permanent recruitment (domestic and international) and tailored resourcing solutions be included, in addition to the current offering of clinical and non-clinical agency solutions and staff banks?

Having begun this engagement we believe we need to conduct more to ensure we develop a market leading and sustainable strategy that will support effective resourcing solutions for health professionals.

Whilst we conduct this additional engagement, customers should continue to use the existing agreements for agency solutions and staff banks.

We expect to have the first sets of procurement documentation ready for OJEU release in the New Year. Please continue to monitor the pipeline page for the latest information.
