Healthcare providers can access the Total Workforce Solutions II framework agreement by visiting the HealthTrust Europe Partnership Portal (

Once registered, the Partnership Portal will offer step by step instructions to support document completion, and allow healthcare providers to self-serve and confirm free access to Lots 3a, 3b & 3c. To confirm access to each Lot of the Total Workforce Solutions II framework agreement it is a requirement for healthcare
providers to:

• Complete an Order Form that acts as an access agreement between the healthcare provider and HealthTrust Europe; and
• Complete a Supplier Access Agreement that compliantly enables healthcare providers to confirm which suppliers they wish to access under the Total Workforce Solutions II agreement.

Following completion of both the Order Form and Supplier Access Agreement HealthTrust Europe will notify the suppliers chosen to confirm transition of supply to the Total Workforce Solutions II framework agreement.
