NHS Procurement in Partnership

NHS Procurement in Partnership is the culmination of the collaborative working of four NHS procurement organisations; NHS Commercial Solutions (NHS CS), East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub (EOE CPH), NHS North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative (NOE CPC), and NHS London Procurement Partnership (LPP).

NHS Procurement in Partnership represents approximately 60per cent of NHS trusts and influences between £6.0 billion and £7.5 billion of NHS non-pay spend. Working in partnership enables NHS Procurement in Partnership to utilise 40 years of collective experience, expertise, market influence and resources to best effect for the NHS.

The NHS spends over £20 billion every year on goods and services, which typically accounts for around 30 per cent of the operating costs of each hospital. Lord Carter’s 2015 review of NHS productivity and unwarranted variation in NHS hospitals suggested that there is around £1bn in procurement savings to be made. The strategic vision in Lord Carter’s report emphasised the importance of collaboration to share information, resource and expertise in order to modernise NHS procurement.

NHS Procurement in Partnership is testament to Lord Carter’s vision with its successful frameworks:
