MSI Group brands awarded places on NHS approved framework
Two of MSI Group’s brands, NRS Global and MSI Recruitment, have been awarded places on Health Trust Europe’s (HTE) ‘Temporary Staffing Nursing & Care Services’ NHS approved framework.
Both brands have been awarded a place under the ‘Nursing Services’ lot across all seven of the framework’s sub-regions. The framework was created by HTE to support the NHS and other healthcare providers in establishing maintainable pay rates based on band, speciality and region, and reducing agency commission to sustainable level.
Nick Simpson, CEO of MSI group, commented, “I am delighted that after providing Health Trust Europe with evidence of MSI Group’s continued commitment to providing a best practice service, both of our nursing recruitment brands have been awarded a place on the ‘Temporary Staffing Nursing & Care Services’ framework.
“At a time when the NHS is experiencing severe staffing shortages and undergoing a restructure that involves extensive funding cuts, the provision of specialist locums at compliant, sustainable rates is vital. And with 45% of nurses eligible for retirement in the next five years, we expect the demand for contractors to continue to rise steadily over the foreseeable future.
“We are immensely proud to provide specialist personnel to NHS Trusts and healthcare providers across all available frameworks and healthcare categories. This latest framework award acts as testament to our excellent reputation as a compliant recruiter. As we grow we will continue to work in partnership with NHS Trusts to migrate non-compliant ‘off framework’ spend and provide a high quality service to our clients.”
Awarded agencies are audited thoroughly and in line with the NHS compliance requirements to promote a high quality, best practice service for customers. MSI Group currently provides medical professionals to NHS Trusts across all available staffing frameworks including the Crown Commercial Service’s Multi-Disciplinary Health Temporary Staffing and Allied Health Professionals Frameworks.
