Meridian Health Awarded a Place on NHS National Clinical Staffing Framework
Meridian Health 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 Meridian Health can supply temporary staff, permanent staff and fixed term staff to clinical positions in the NHS.
Meridian Health 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.
Tina Cork, Health Operations Director of Meridian Health 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.”
“This complements the other Frameworks that Meridian Health work under - HTE and CCS and gives our clients the freedom to choose which Framework they wish to work under, so they can be sure they are getting the best value and a safe and quality service.”
 The NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership is a collaboration of four NHS procurement hubs - NHS Commercial Solutions, NHS North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative, East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub and NHS London Procurement Partnership
