HealthTrust Europe has launched its latest Framework Agreement to support health and care organisations to source the latest innovations in workforce solutions. Launched on the 1st February 2021, Total Workforce Solutions II (TWS II) directly supersedes the existing Total Workforce Solutions portfolio (TWS I) , enhancing the offering with a range of additional benefits.
The Framework is available on a free to access basis for NHS, wider public sector and care providers across the UK, offering the latest in workforce planning technology, apps, bank, agency and other associated workforce solutions.
TWS II builds on the excellent services previously offered in TWS I I, renewing the framework’s NHSE&I approval (NHS approved agency framework) with a detailed tendering process that has robustly tested the capacity, capability, quality and price criteria of awarded suppliers for best value. This means that NHSE&I has reviewed our Framework application and agreed that it aligns to regulatory requirements, in support of national initiatives such as the NHS People Plan, off framework removal and enhancing international recruitment.
The expanded scope of TWS II has been designed with healthcare providers at its core, with our customers and healthcare partners in mind – incorporating several years of stakeholder feedback to deliver enhanced terms, drive better value, and offer access to the latest supply chain innovations. Our commitment is to improve the quality of care for the betterment of human life, and our enhanced Framework helps us to equip healthcare organisations to achieve that goal with controls, processes and solutions that maximise successful outcomes.
TWS II also helps to provide our partners with assurance on the highest standards of quality, audit, data protection, fill rates and a total spend management approach for controls on workforce expenditure – ensuring our customers are able to operate within their budgets whilst delivering the highest possible quality of care.
Providers can register for access to TWS II via our Partnership Portal, offering a ‘self-serve’ access option for agency staffing services through our new digital access platform. We hope that this will further support providers with coverage and on demand, compliant framework supply.
If you have any other questions and would like to speak directly to one of our dedicated customer service team members, you can contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org or if you would like to sign up to one or more lots of TWS II, please visit the Partnership Portal linked above to register and call-off.
