BNA British Nursing Association wins Platinum Award In LPP London Procurement Programme For Nursing Agency Services
Nursing agency BNA British Nursing Association has been awarded platinum status following a full audit by the NHS London Procurement Programme, the national procurement partner for UK public services. The audit demonstrates the nursing agency's commitment to supporting the NHS by ensuring the availability of high quality agency nurses, cost-effectively, with secure compliance systems in place.
The audit focused on the recruitment by BNA British Nursing Association of temporary nursing staff for NHS Trusts through the London Procurement Programme (LPP) framework. The agency was awarded the LPP Framework for Nursing: it supplies nursing staff for hospital, primary care and domestic home settings.
The agency has extensive experience in working with the NHS and has developed amongst the most advanced compliance systems in the sector to maximise safety in the recruitment, management and selection of nurses and HCA healthcare assistants for shifts, with a 24-7 service to meet all temporary staffing needs. The agency's compliance team has 124 staff dedicated exclusively to credentials checks.
Key features of the agency's systems include the bespoke Enterprise ICT compliance system - with over 100,000 hours of development time over 6 years. Nurse registration requires mandatory face-to-face interviews; comprehensive credentials checks; CRB; completion of a 23-page career form; provision of four referees; and presentation of professional certifications.
On-going training for nursing staff at the agency includes 13 mandatory courses annually, with 60 training events for 900 candidates monthly. Compliance protection features daily system-generated 'expiry reports' of training dates; automated e-mail expiry reminders to candidates; and automatic system exclusion of staff from booking in Enterprise if certification expires.
