The Placement Group awarded a place on NHS National Clinical Staffing Framework

Thursday 18th August 2016

The Placement Group has been awarded a place on the new National Clinical Staffing Framework for the NHS.

Being awarded a place on Lot 1 and 2 of the National Clinical Staffing Framework, developed for the NHS by the NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership , means that The Placement Group can supply temporary staff, permanent staff and fixed term staff to clinical positions in the NHS.

The Placement Group successfully underwent an independent audit of our services and met the criteria for providing qualified clinical staff who can give high quality patient care at rates within the pay caps set by the government. These pay caps have been introduced to help the NHS control spiralling agency staffing costs.

The Placement Group’s Director of Contracts Chris Knowles said “We are delighted to have been awarded a place on the National Clinical Staffing Framework. We understand the challenges being faced by the NHS and are keen to help the NHS to provide quality patient care.”
