Athona Recruitment awarded a place on NHS National Clinical Staffing Framework

Athona Recruitment has been awarded a place on the new National Clinical Staffing Framework for the NHS.

Being awarded a place on Lots one and two of the National Clinical Staffing Framework, developed for the NHS by the NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership*, means that Athona Recruitment can supply temporary, permanent and fixed-term staff to clinical positions in the NHS.

Athona Recruitment successfully underwent an independent audit of our services and met the criteria for providing qualified clinical staff who can give high quality patient care at rates within the pay caps set by the government. These pay caps have been introduced to help the NHS control spiralling agency staffing costs.

Athona Recruitment, Managing Director said “We are delighted to have been awarded a place on the National Clinical Staffing Framework. We understand the challenges being faced by the NHS and are keen to help the NHS to provide quality patient care.”

*The NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership is a collaboration of four NHS procurement hubs – NHS Commercial Solutions, NHS North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative, East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub and NHS London Procurement Partnership
