Patchwork is hugely proud to announce that after a competitive process, we have now been named a supplier on the new Crown Commercial Service Staff Bank Framework (RM6158 Flexible Resource Pool).
As the first framework agreement released in collaboration between Crown Commercial Service (CCS)* and NHS Procurement in Partnership, Patchwork’s appointment will be focusing on the provision of Staff Bank services to NHS Contracting Authorities.
This announcement comes in addition to our re-appointment on the G-Cloud 11 framework for the 2nd consecutive year – offering our NHS partners a wide range of procurement options.
We are delighted to be given the opportunity to shape a new era in healthcare staffing, in line with NHSi initiatives and the NHS People Plan.
Patchwork will continue to revolutionise flexible working in the NHS – helping NHS organisations save millions by connecting them to an increasing number of flexible bank workers, in order to grow their staff banks, reduce reliance on locum agencies, and improve the experience of flexible working.
We will continue to help save time, money and effort, so that it can be better spent on patient care.
* Crown Commercial Service supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services, delivering £354 million in commercial benefits including savings for central government, and £247 million for the wider public sector in 2017/18.
