Upcoming International Recruitment Framework
26 July 2018

With overseas recruitment of GPs falling significantly short of target, according to HSJ (, the Hub is pleased to announce that our Workforce team is working on an International Recruitment framework, due to go live this autumn. 


Working in partnership with the other three regional hubs, we have contributed to creating a new national International Healthcare Professionals Recruitment and Associated Services framework.


The tender for this project is now closed, and evaluations will begin shortly. The contract is intended to start in October 2018, at which point Trusts will be able to access a compliant route to market for the sourcing and placement of overseas clinical staff.


Once the contract is live, the Hub will be available to support to Trusts, or collaborative clusters of Trusts, in commissioning recruitment campaigns. Through this framework, most Trusts will be able to award business by way of a Further Competition, but there is also capacity in the contract to Direct Award.
