New NHS staffing agreement

Your choice of agency has never been so important

From 19 October 2015, all agency staff employed by NHS trusts in England must be hired via an NHS approved national framework.

So what does this mean for you? 

If you are working for another agency

  • They may not be able to supply through the correct framework (only a small percentage of agencies are approved suppliers)
  • Your placement may be at risk if you are not supplied through a framework
  • Your rate could potentially be reduce

If you are thinking of working locum

The new rules shouldn’t stop you
In fact, they provide more security if you are with the right agency
Choose your agency carefully; make sure they are approved to supply to the NHS trusts you would like to work for

If you are working for Sanctuary
