Primary Care has been awarded a place on the new National Clinical Staffing Framework for the NHS.

Being awarded a place on Lots 1 & 2 of the National Clinical Staffing Framework, developed for the NHS by the NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership[1], means that Primary Care can supply temporary, permanent, and fixed term staff to clinical positions in the NHS.

Primary Care 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.

Primary Care Director Joanne Wood 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.”
