Dear Mr Adil,

Thank you for your email.

As stated in the FOI-2013-1567 Final Response letter, all agencies/suppliers the Trust currently use for Medical Locums are classified as Tier 2 suppliers. This means we don’t have any agreements with Master Vendor Solution, Neutral Vendor Solution, Tier 1 Suppliers and S.L.A (Service Level Agreements).

Regarding your other point, this was not in your original request. Would you like to submit a new request for the list of dates these agreements started and the duration of them?

Kind Regards
