HealthTrust Europe’s Nursing and Care Services Framework Approved by Monitor

We are pleased to announce that the HealthTrust Europe (HTE) framework agreement for Nursing and Care services has passed the approval process set out by Monitor, the NHS Trust Development Authority (TDA) and the Department of Health (DoH) within the recent project on Agency Staffing controls. HTE received a special commendation within the communication for our work to go above and beyond the outlined requirements on pay rates and control processes, which demonstrates that we continue to strive to be the standout framework to the NHS and deliver best value within difficult market conditions.

Whether the local issue is off framework spend, engaging the supply chain or achieving best value, we have the experience and expertise to support Trusts in gaining control of the market and working in harmony with the local health economy.

From 19th October, Trusts are required to comply with the new nursing agency rules and source nursing agency staff via an approved framework such as the HTE Nursing & Care Services framework.

Please contact our Customer Care Team for further information and a copy of our framework brief on 0845 887 5000 or by emailing

As part of our continuous improvement programme, we welcome all Trusts to engage with HTE to review how we can best support the NHS in delivering the requirements from Monitor.
