The Group

Our Purpose

HEG exists as a special purpose vehicle to provide Vendor Managed Services to Trusts and health service providers under the terms of the newly formulated Crown Commercial Service (CCS) National Framework for Multidisciplinary Temporary Healthcare Personnel; for the provision of temporary Medical, Nursing and AHP/HSS staff.

Our innovative solution gives organizations all the benefits of using experienced recruitment specialists, but with a strong emphasis on managing costs and delivering quality. Effectively, HEG offers healthcare providers a unique, credible alternative to the limited choice of large, generic agencies that have the capacity to provide the full scope of these services.

Managed Service solutions

Our group members have a proven track record of delivering managed service contracts and Master Vendor solutions to both NHS and private sector healthcare organisations from departmental level agreements to large scale regional vendor.

Utilising a Vendor Managed Recruitment Service can significantly improve the efficiency of an organisation’s temporary staffing provision by acting as a ‘one stop’ solution.

The entire temporary workforce demand can be catered for with the centralisation of all assignments; giving managers a clear picture of demand, usage and fill rates whilst maintaining closer control of expenditure.


HEG has clear objectives; to offer...

  • Framework approved Master Vendor / Managed Service
  • A single point of contact for all recruitment needs
  • Genuine specialist recruitment services
  • A unique high volume, high value recruitment alternative
  • Staff screening that exceeds NHS Employers requirements


Fulfilment of these objectives delivers multiple benefits:

  • Volume discounts
  • Substantial cost savings via streamlined administration
  • Improved fill rates and workforce planning
  • Detailed management information (MI).
  • The latest web based recruitment technologies
  • A high quality, bespoke service delivered by specialists
  • The creative energy of owner operated organizations

Working in partnership

The Group’s strength, under a single management team, enables us to compete and secure major recruitment contracts, backed up with real market knowledge and sector specific recruitment experience.

All HEG member companies are fully committed to working in partnership, whilst retaining their freedom to operate as independent trading brands. All members are CCS, HTE and LPP approved suppliers.
