Written by Caryn Cooper
With its solid reputation and longstanding in the medical recruitment industry, ID Medical proudly confirms its newly appointed position through the HealthTrust Europe Medical Locums Framework Agreement as the Software Portal Supplier and one of five Tier 1 providers to Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust in Greater Manchester, the largest non-teaching Trust in the UK employing around 8,000 staff.
The Trust provides a range of elective emergency, district general services, some specialist services and operates from four sites, Fairfield General Hospital, Bury; North Manchester General Hospital; The Royal Oldham Hospital and Rochdale Infirmary.
This contract achievement for the UK’s leading multi-disciplinary healthcare recruiter was a result of ID Medical’s ‘most economically advantageous tender’ offering, compiled through the professional entry of its tender team. Its Simplicity Software portal, a world-class management solution system, was commended on its functionality; namely its level of support, the types of training provided and the intuitive, easy to use format of its user screens.
The technology was altogether well received operationally by the Evaluation Panel, and with respect to ID Medical’s overall presentation, HealthTrust Europe debriefed that ID Medical’s bid team “excelled in clarifying high level responses and reassuring the Trust with respect to delivering to its requirements”.
Deenu Patel, managing director at ID Medical, commented, “The passion and empathy to understand our clients’ ever-changing and enduring pressures, combined with respect for delivering to requirements and beyond, continues to stand us in good stead for building a long-term relationship with Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust.
For us, it is all about just that, the long-term. Our sustainable solutions are aligned to future models of care, meaning we are best placed to help Trusts deal with the challenges that lie ahead. This award represents a momentous step for us and illustrates the level of work and complete dedication that is resolutely put in from our entire workforce”.
