Bluecross Locums announces its place as a preferred supplier on the NHS London Procurement Framework.

12 April 2012

Bluecross Locums has been trading since 2004 operating as an ‘off’ Framework staffing agency to London hospitals. Despite their Tier One status with one leading hospital and compliance that has been independently audited as ‘second to none’, Bluecross has traded successfully, offering exemplary customer service, outside of the major procurement frameworks. “We owe our growth to having a consistent and long serving portfolio of dedicated Doctors who do not work for anyone else, but there comes a time when you are a growing business that you want to be recognised and that is why we chose to go on Framework” says Suresh Pithiya, CEO and Founder of Bluecross Locums.

As a supplier working ‘on’ Framework, staffing agencies have a duty to ensure that compliance procedures are adhered to, where these are regularly checked through independent audit. Pricing is auctioned and once accepted contracts stipulate that these should be honoured. As an experienced player in the market Bluecross recognise many of the issues the NHS has with flexible staffing and the procurement process. “We are currently working with the LPP and liaising on some of the issues that they are facing in administering the Framework as market practice often differs to what is laid down in contracts” says Pithiya.
