Case Study 1 – Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust

Subsequent to a merger of three separate trusts, Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust (LPT) faced difficulties in controlling their temporary staffing and agency spend, and experienced a high dependency on non-approved agency supply. With financial and executive backing, LPT discovered the benefits of engaging with a master vendor, HCA Clarity Managed Services. After only four months into the master vendor agreement, Clarity helped LPT to regain control over their agency staff, with complete removal of non-approved agencies from the supply chain, projected savings of £650K per annum from reduced nursing agency spend, and increased fill rates. Click here to read more.
