Cpl UK Healthcare awarded National CHS framework supplier status

RIG Medical Recruit Ltd and RIG Locums Ltd T/A CPL UK – Healthcare are proud to announce that they have been awarded as suppliers on the National Clinical and Healthcare Staffing Framework published under Workforce Alliance for the NHS.

Working with us via a national framework gives our customers the peace of mind that they are working with a team of responsible and specialist recruiters and will benefit from having access to a compliant and rigorously-vetted staffing solution in adherence to NHSI and NHSE guidelines. This award follows a great deal of work from our team which resulted in high quality and price scores that reflects our 19 year strong track record as a provider of healthcare staff to the NHS.

Commenting on this award, our CEO, Affi Khan said “This is a huge milestone for us, whilst we have a rich history with the NHS in the UK, our services have been mostly focused on the Allied Health and Medical Locums market. Over the past 3 years, whilst the market went through a downturn, we’ve successfully expanded our offering into other markets. This award crystallises that strategy and gives us national access to temporary supply of nursing and social care too. As we come out this pandemic, the NHS will divert its attention to the crippling back log we face. We are proud to be able to serve across the board to help on this front.”

Following this appointment to the framework, CPL UK – Healthcare (RIG) will be offering temporary staffing solutions in the following disciplines:

  • Lot 1 Nursing & Midwifery Staff
  • Lot 2 Medical Locums
  • Lot 3 AHPs & Health Scientists
  • Lot 5 Social Care


As market leaders in the supply of Allied Health Professionals, and long-term framework suppliers, we look forward to continuing to support our customers as well as expanding our offering of Doctors and Nurses to the NHS, particularly in London and the surrounding counties, building on the already strong presence we have in these areas for AHP.

“This award announcement comes at a great time following the launch of the “My CPL” app. This free to use award-winning technology enables healthcare staff to book agency shifts, update their availability and self-service upload important documents for verification – all  in real time – meaning we can deliver the right compliant staff quicker when and where they are needed” – Robert Bryan, Managing Director

We look forward to building on our deep understanding of the NHS staffing market and broaden our scope to provide talent solutions at a wider scale.
