Bluestones Medical is now an approved supplier for temporary Clinical & Healthcare staff to NHS England via the Workforce Alliance Framework. This award follows 10 years of Bluestones Medical supporting NHS Trusts & the public sector with their temporary staffing across Nursing, Allied Health and Healthcare Assistant positions.
This Framework is an expansion of the Collaborative Procurement Partnership (CPP) National Clinical Staffing & Crown Commercial Services (CCS) Multidisciplinary Temporary Healthcare Personnel frameworks. This new Clinical & Healthcare staffing framework enables Bluestones Medical to supply temporary staff to all public sector bodies via a single framework and is therefore a simplified route to market.
Bluestones Medical will be working in partnership with the “Workforce Alliance” who are the only public sector managed framework body in England. This award will enable Bluestones Medical to continue supporting the public sector via the provision of personnel from a highly experienced pool of clinical & healthcare staff, which has never been more critical than in the current climate.
Bluestones Medical CEO, Trish Stratford commented,
Securing a place on the Workforce Alliance framework is testament to Bluestones Medical’s proven capability in providing comprehensive staffing services to clinical and healthcare clients throughout the UK in both the public and private sector.
Bluestones Medical Managing Director Darren Logue states,
The high quality clinical and healthcare staffing services our teams provide are fundamentally what allowed us to secure our place on this framework agreement. I have every confidence that we will continue to play a key role in the provision of personnel to NHS England.
What does this mean for our public sector Clients?
As a recognised framework agency, this award enables Bluestones Medical to continue to support NHS Trusts & other public sector bodies with their temporary staffing needs. By supplying our Clinical & Healthcare workers through the “Workforce Alliance” framework we are able to offer complete assurance that all candidate compliance checks have been conducted rigorously with staff supplied at a rate that is aligned to the pricing caps set by NHS Improvement. This reduces the need to use expensive off contract agencies whilst giving organisations the peace of mind that all staff supplied have the same level of clearances as substantive staff.
What does this mean for our workforce?
This new award cements Bluestones Medical status as an approved, compliant and recognised recruitment agency within the NHS and other public sector bodies. It enables the business to continue to offer a significant variety of work including General, Mental Health, Theatre and Community Nursing throughout England.
New registrants with Bluestone Medical will be given immediate access to our shift booking app, where all of the opportunities we are currently supporting will be visible to you. Alongside our excellent free training package, in-house Clinical Manager providing 24/7 support, and access to an exclusive worker perkbox discount scheme, Bluestones Medical workers will be in full control of their career as an agency Clinical or Healthcare member of staff.
