A multifaceted strategy
Designed to sustainably reduce your trust’s contingent labour costs and eradicate off-Framework reliance.Start reducing costs
Take back control of your DE processes
Many trusts lose significant revenue from missed opportunities in their Direct Engagement processes, not having a Managed Services supply chain or long term permanent recruitment strategy.
With the Agency Reduction Programme, we help ensure you’re realising the full benefits, leading to maximised savings.
And our focus isn’t just on the short term; we help you build for the future.
Flexible to any organisation’s requirements
Our programme can help you realise extensive savings opportunities through:
• Agency Management and Direct Engagement
• Fully Managed Services
• International, Permanent Recruitment
• Clinical Services – Insourcing and outsourcing
All supported by fully interoperable Workforce Management Technology for transparent Management Information.
Rate and unit cost reductions for tangible savings
Unnoticed excessive charges and varying rates from different departments can quickly add up. By providing a comprehensive analysis of your trust’s agency spend, we can identify and rectify these inefficiencies.
Another approach for reducing rates and unit costs is through the eradication of off-Framework reliance. This is made possible through ID Medical’s approval with all major Frameworks.
Our market insight also allows us to adapt to seasonal demands, ensuring you always get the best value.
Reduce demand, increase consistency
Rather than just filling vacancies, our aim is to reduce the overall demand for agency workers. Our continuous international recruitment drive, coupled with a demand reduction strategy, ensures that we can fill positions with substantive workers, leading to consistent, long-term savings.
With our consultancy insights, we’re not just reacting to current needs; we’re anticipating future demands.
Engaging the supply chain for unrivalled value
The heart of our approach lies in changing the inefficient buying behaviours prevalent in the industry. We focus on ensuring the best value for your trust, with a commitment to cost-efficiency.
With our unmatched reputation and established relationships, we stand in the optimal position to offer the best rates, every single time.
Achieve 80–90% Direct Engagement throughput
Where most trusts achieve a maximum of 30–40% throughput due to existing inefficiencies, our tailored programme guarantees an impressive 80–90% DE throughput.
This is because we not only have a huge pool of HCPs already registered with us, but access to an amazing supply chain to ensure your fill maximises your DE trhoughput.

Honestly wonderful. Helped me to complete on line requirements, and reviewed the data I had put onto the system. I had not been through this process before and was unsure what was needed, so this made me feel very reassured that I was prepared on the day of my Revalidation. Easy to contact, prioritized my concerns so that they were addressed quickly to avoid stress/concern.”
