Ukrainian crisis - update on NHS LPP suppliers
In light of the recent letter from the Secretary of State for Health issued on 3 March 2022, asking NHS Trusts to review suppliers linked to Russia and Belarus, we have conducted a review on NHS LPP’s suppliers as below. We are also providing information on how you can use Atamis to support you with this process.
We will continue to share important updates. In the meantime, if you need further information, please get in touch at Customer@lpp.nhs.uk.
How Atamis can help
We’ve been in touch with the relevant NHS England team, who confirmed that you can create a report with the below criteria on Atamis for your contracted suppliers (or for the whole of the London region) and look at the country of origin of your direct suppliers.
- Supplier name

- SQ-1.1(o) Immediate Parent

NHS LPP suppliers
As part of our ongoing supplier resilience activity with Tier 1 framework and DPS suppliers, we focused on all suppliers on frameworks and DPSs with links to Russian companies within their respective supply chains.
Our initial findings are:
1. There are no suppliers on NHS LPP frameworks and DPSs identified so far, that are directly Russian owned
2. There is a low risk of exposure of FM, Linen and Laundry and MOPP supply chains to Russian companies
Our current activity
We have approximately 1000 suppliers with spend greater than £0.5m per annum through NHS LPP contracts. We have started the process of checking the ownership status of all 1000 and are approximately 20% through the task. We will update you immediately if we find any suppliers that have links to Russian or Belarusian ownership. So far we have identified none.
Our next steps for NHS LPP framework and DPS suppliers
1) Follow up on updates from suppliers from the first round of investigations
2) Conduct a second round of supplier investigation: Minor Works, Clinical Digital Solutions – commenced 7 March
3) Develop recommendations for members around supply chain mapping and resilience assessment
