NHS Supply Chain

With the challenge ahead for the NHS to deliver £20 billion in savings by the end of the financial year 2014-15 and £1.2 billion to come from improving procurement, this now needs to be considered as a strategic priority. NHS Supply Chain is positioned as a national provider to work alongside trusts to respond to the evolving landscape.

NHS Supply Chain provides a wide range of healthcare products and customer focused supply chain services to the UK NHS. Our aim is to provide more than £1 billion of savings to the NHS, so resources can be released for NHS trusts and healthcare organisations to focus on quality frontline patient care, managing costs and achieving sustainable value.

We provide end-to-end supply chain services incorporating the procurement, sourcing and delivery of over 600,000, supported by our eCommerce systems and customer and supplier support.
