What could we do for you?:
To support you in achieving efficiency and excellence in your clinical services, we offer a complete suite of Managed Services, from Rate Management right the way through to Staff Bank and Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO).
Guaranteed Fill Rates
We supply the full range of locum, temporary and permanent healthcare professionals into hospital and healthcare organisations with an established reputation for providing a quality of service and integrity that is second to none. Over the last 25 years, we have developed an unrivalled candidate pool and network of suppliers across all staffing groups, consistently filling high volumes of jobs across the UK.
Our control of pay and charge rates have generated substantial savings for our clients with our managed service clients paying on average £11 per hour less than our non-managed service clients. We use management information to monitor average pay rates and escalation points, which we share with our customers to make informed decisions. As one of the largest specialist staffing providers, we are able to secure candidates at competitive rates and each of our suppliers has committed to pay rates in line with NHSI guidance.
How necessary is your agency spend? We find that many of our clients have high levels of unnecessary agency spend that we are able to identify immediately. By working in partnership with you to develop authorisation and approval protocols, we can identify and remove inappropriate demand to see an immediate reduction in direct and retrospective bookings.
Medacs Healthcare operates a number of direct engagement models, which can be a standalone product or integrated with other external providers. Each of the models is geared towards ensuring maximum efficiencies for our clients and delivering immediate savings for you.
Supply Chain Management
Taking full responsibility for the management of the supply chain, Medacs Healthcare ensures that all contracts, SLA's and audit requirements are managed on behalf of our clients. Through effective use of our supply chain, Medacs Healthcare drives the removal of non-framework agencies in support of NHSI guidance. Our focus is about the fulfilment of your requirements at the best rates, making sure that quality and compliance remain at the core of what we deliver. We always ensure that there is a suitable range of quality suppliers able to meet your specific needs.
Permanent recruitment is at the core of driving down agency spend, our model works in tandem with our demand management process. We identify trends in temporary staff usage and long-term locum bookings to proactively recruit permanent candidates from our extensive global recruitment network. Recruiting for ‘hard to fill’ permanent vacancies and the more generalist roles will generate substantial savings for you, as well as supporting continuity of care for your patients.
Medacs Healthcare can take on board and manage the compliance for all locums working at your Trust. We carry out stringent vetting procedures in line with NHS Employers and Framework Standards. Some of our major successes in this field have included stopping substantive staff doing extra work at their trusts through agencies. Our locums and those of our suppliers will be fully compliant, giving you confidence in the standard of your temporary staff.
Medacs Healthcare can offer a fully outsourced staff bank or take on board management of existing staff banks. In providing a fully managed staff bank service we would target improving your fill rates by reducing agency usage, increasing the supply and quality of bank staff, and improving best practice governance and local relationship management.
Recruitment Process Optimisation (RPO)
RPO can help your organisation recruit the talent you need quickly and cost effectively, whilst ensuring a positive candidate experience. Medacs Healthcare provides a full end-to-end solution to manage and deliver your permanent, contract and fixed term recruitment. By reducing the time to hire and vacancy rates we can support you in delivering efficiency and safety improvements.
