  • Lot 1: Neutral vendor
  • Lot 2: Master vendor
  • Lot 3: Admin and clerical
  • Lot 4: Corporate functions
  • Lot 5: IT professionals
  • Lot 6: Legal
  • Lot 7: Clinical coding

Lots three to eight allow you to engage either on a direct engagement/fixed-term basis (employed by the trust for a fixed period of time) or as temporary resource (not employed).

A total of 175 suppliers are appointed across all eight lots.

Pay rates are structured around AfC and new simplified pricing tools are available that reflect an all-inclusive total charge rate.
