HealthTrust Europe LLP – Launching Total Workforce Solutions II

HealthTrust Europe is delighted to announce that the Total Workforce Solutions II (‘TWS II’) framework agreement will launch on 1st February 2021 for NHS providers to access. Available on a free to access basis across the UK, TWS II provides the latest in technology/apps, bank, agency, and associated workforce solutions to support the NHS.

Initially comprising of nine lots, TWS II directly supersedes and enhances our existing workforce portfolio previously available under the Total Workforce Solutions (‘TWS I’) framework agreement.

(please note TWS I is due to expire on the 30th April 2021)


NHSE&I approved and in alignment to the aims of the NHS People Plan, the expanded scope of TWS II incorporates many years of stakeholder feedback, delivering enhanced terms, driving better value and offering access to the latest workforce supply chain innovations.  HTE is committed to providing NHS partners with assurance on the highest standards of quality, audit, data protection, fill rates and a total spend management approach for controls on organisational workforce expenditure. TWS II has been designed with healthcare providers at its heart to support local and collaborative implementation of a sustainable workforce strategy, developed through robust, comprehensive tendering (restricted procedure – criteria available on request) to support the delivery of the right resource, at the right time, for the right cost.

NHS providers can pre-register for access to TWS II via HTE’s Partnership Portal by following this link. HTE will also be offering a “self-serve” access option for agency staffing services through our new digital access platform to support providers with coverage and “on framework” supply.


TWS II – Introduction to the Framework and HTE Services

To further support stakeholder understanding of TWS II and to provide an opportunity for us to share details and to answer your questions, HTE will be hosting two initial introductory sessions via WebEx on the 4th and 11th February, covering the following:

  • Key benefits and enhancements to the TWS II framework agreement;
  • Transitioning supply from existing TWS lots to TWS II;
  • Awarded suppliers, sub-contracting and suppliers no longer awarded;
  • Behavioural expectations of the supplier community;
  • Access, customer engagement and key information documents;
  • Q&A

We recommend that providers book in to get the most from TWS II, please email to confirm which date you wish to attend so that we can action the appropriate registration invitation.
