The London Procurement Programme (LPP) is a membership organisation, founded and funded by NHS organisations to support the NHS in making the most of its purchasing power to help deliver the highest quality services whilst ensuring value for money. At the heart of its ethos, is a national framework agreement to benchmark the compliance, quality and supply of nursing and support staff to the NHS and other national healthcare providers.

Nursing and recruitment agencies who hold the LPP Framework contract have to conform to its rules and regulations. Primarily they must ensure that the staff they supply are DBS (CRB) checked, hold relevant qualifications and are fit for practice, undergo regular appraisals and supervision and have attended annual mandatory training courses.

Nursing agencies on the LPP Framework are audited on a regular basis and are awarded a status each year pending the outcome. Westmeria Recruitment has held platinum status for the past 3 years which is the highest award a recruitment agency can receive.
