Dear 5 Boroughs Partnership NHS Foundation Trust,

I am researching temporary staffing processes within the NHS. Please provide the following information:

1. For the financial year 2015 / 2016, what was your spend per agency and the names of each agency, broken down in to the following staff groups:

- Psychologists
- High Intensity Therapists
- Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners
- CAMHS Practitioners
- Counsellors

2. Do you currently hold any contractual agreements including Master Vendor, Neutral Vendor, Preferred Supplier, Sole Supplier with any staffing agency? When will these contractual agreements be reviewed?

3. Do you use any suppliers or systems to manage the release of vacancies to agencies and bank workers? (If so, please state the name of the company used and the staffing categories managed. If you use different suppliers/systems for different staffing categories, please specify.)

Yours faithfully,

Lauren Roy
