Following the announcement by NHS Improvement (formerly Monitor and Trust Development Authority) that all 5 CCS frameworks are on their list of approved frameworks for agency staff, we are pleased to announce a series of free workshops to help NHS trusts use the CCS frameworks to meet their obligations under the new rules.

The workshops are taking place in 4 locations across the country:

  • Bristol, Tuesday 17 May, 10am to 12.30pm
  • Manchester, Tuesday 17 May, 10am to 12.30pm
  • Birmingham, Wednesday 18 May, 10am to 12.30pm
  • London, Thursday 19 May, 10am to 12.30pm (FULL) and 1.30pm to 4pm (FULL)
  • London, Wednesday 1 June, 10am to 12.30pm

Each event features a programme of interactive sessions focusing on:

  • data analysis and key trends
  • how to manage the agency rules ‘on framework’
  • how to call-off from the CCS frameworks
