🚨 NHS Framework Change Alert! 🚨

As of July 1st, 2024, NHS England will implement a new operating framework that significantly impacts how agencies collaborate with NHS Trusts. This new policy mandates that only Framework-Approved agencies can provide staff to NHS Trusts, ensuring that all recruitment meets stringent quality and compliance standards.

Implications for You

If you’re working through an agency in any NHS Trust across England, it is essential to verify your agency’s Framework-Approved status immediately. Failure to do so could result in significant disruptions to your employment. Ensuring your agency's compliance with the new framework is critical to maintaining your role and continuing to provide care within the NHS​ (NHS Providers)​.

What is the NHS Framework Policy?

The NHS framework policy, set out in the NHS England Operating Framework, defines the roles and responsibilities of NHS England, integrated care boards (ICBs), and NHS providers. This framework, which was co-created with over 300 system leaders and stakeholders, is designed to improve local health outcomes and ensure value for taxpayers. It delineates how these entities will work together within the new statutory structure established by the Health and Care Act 2022​ (NHS England)​​ (NHS Providers)​.

Why It Matters

Adherence to the framework policy is crucial for maintaining high standards of care within the NHS. By partnering exclusively with Framework-Approved agencies, NHS England aims to ensure that all healthcare professionals are fully vetted, qualified, and compliant with the highest standards of practice. This change is vital for enhancing patient care and operational efficiency across the healthcare system.
