LPP strapline

New national Medical Locums framework in planning: supplier event

LPP is leading the NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership (CPP) in the process of preparing a tender for a national medical locum framework agreement.

The NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership (CPP) is formed of four regional procurement hubs namely:

• North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative
• NHS London Procurement Partnership
• NHS Commercial Solutions and
• East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub.

Collectively, CPP puts in place a range of competitive contracts and frameworks to support the NHS in ensuring maximum value is gained from its investments in patient care.

CPP is in the process of preparing a tender for a national medical locum framework agreement. It is envisaged that the framework will be formed of regional lots across England and that the tender exercise will streamline the engagement of agency locum workers.

CPP is hosting a supplier engagement session to meet with recruitment agents that supply medical locums and general practitioner (temporary and permanent) workers. The purpose of the event is to discuss CPP’s plans for the framework and receive feedback from suppliers.
