Workforce Support is now live!
Crown Commercial Service and NHS Procurement in Partnership are working together to deliver health workforce services under the banner of the Workforce Alliance.
The collaboration is to ensure our customers have easy and quick access to a sustainable workforce and is part of a long-term plan to deliver a whole portfolio of health workforce services.
The Workforce Alliance has grouped four of its existing frameworks together to form Workforce Support.
We’ve selected the best aspects of our existing support frameworks and put them in one place as a joint offer under the Workforce Alliance. The package is aimed at providing customers with a route to source additional services in support of health HR and workforce functions.
The Workforce Support Services package brings together four CCS frameworks: Managed Learning Service, Occupational Health, Employee Assistance Programmes and Eye Care and Permanent Recruitment Solutions as well as the HR lot (Lot 4) of its Management Consultancy framework.
Together, these can be used to provide additional services in support of the other frameworks now offered under the Workforce Alliance: International Recruitment, Flexible Resource Pool – Staff Bank, and Non-Clinical Temporary and Fixed-Term Staff.
The Workforce Alliance Board said: “We are delighted to be able to deliver this selection of frameworks under the umbrella of Workforce Support. These frameworks reinforce our commitment for a sustainable NHS workforce model, and we believe these agreements will bring real benefits to our customers in the NHS and wider public sector.
