The UK has a severe shortage of doctors which is why our services are and will continue to be in great demand. Our commitment now is to continue working closely with Pro-Cure to provide them with a first class service.
(PRWeb UK) October 15, 2010
HCL Thames Medics, the market leading provider of doctors to the NHS on the National Framework and part of HCL plc, is pleased to announce that it has been named a preferred supplier to Pro-Cure, the procurement hub for NHS South Central, which covers 27 NHS Trusts in the region.
The Company, which supplies doctors of all grades and specialties to the NHS, other public and private sector bodies, is one of eight staffing agencies to be named a preferred supplier. Under the terms of the agreement, which is due to run until the end 2012, Pro-Cure will automatically look to its preferred suppliers for all its staffing needs as first port of call.
The agreement makes HCL Thames Medics a preferred supplier to a range of leading Trusts including Oxford Radcliffe Hospitals NHS Trust, NHS Buckinghamshire, Hampshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre NHS Trust. The contract was awarded to HCL in recognition of its market leading expertise in health and social care staffing; not just for doctors, but also in nursing. The Company is also to supply nurses to Pro-Cure as part of a separate agreement.
Kirsten Simcoe, Managing Director of HCL Thames Medics, said:
“HCL Thames Medics has grown its market reach exponentially over the past year, and the agreement to supply to the South Central region means that we are now suppliers to almost every NHS hospital in the UK.
“This latest success is also a measure of the breadth of expertise of HCL plc – we were invited to tender for this contract after winning a similar contract for nurses, and we also supply allied health professionals and qualified social workers.
“The UK has a severe shortage of doctors which is why our services are and will continue to be in great demand. Our commitment now is to continue working closely with Pro-Cure to provide them with a first class service.”
