NHS Workforce Alliance Managed Staff Bank (RM6278)

21/03/2023 - 20/03/2026

Framework Reference Number: RM6278

NHS Workforce Alliance framework supporting access to HR consultancy services as part of our Workforce Support offering. 

Managed Staff Banks is the third iteration of this framework and builds on the benefits of previous versions, Flexible Resource Pool and Workforce Management. It fully supports NHS England’s policy to minimize the use of agency staff and promote a bank first approach. The framework also provides NHS organisations with an open, fair and transparent route for setting up staff banks that also deliver value for money.

The services available through this agreement are sorted into one lot: Managed Staff Banks. The framework provides access to a full range of staff bank services, including but not limited to:

  • Staff bank set up, including regional and sub-regional banks as required
  • Operation and management of a staff bank, including employment of the workers if required
  • Management of cascade to agency suppliers
  • Workforce analysis and advice services, to help you understand demand patterns and current use of substantive and flexible workforce

You cannot use the framework to purchase a standalone eRostering system or any equivalent standalone technology solution. A secure technology solution will be provided by the supplier to support management of the staff bank delivered under this framework.
