NHS Procurement in Partnership

NHS Procurement in Partnership

We are one quarter of NHS Procurement in Partnership (NHS PiP) a four-hub collaboration between NHS Commercial Solutions, East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub and NHS London Procurement Partnership. This collaboration enables NHS PiP to utilise the collective expertise of each organisation, to facilitate aggregation, avoid unnecessary duplication and influence the procurement landscape to best effect for the NHS.

Previously known as the NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership we have collectively delivered award winning projects such as Total Orthopaedic Solutions and National Clinical Staffing.

Current frameworks delivered by the Partnership include:

e-Catalogue and e-Requisitioning Services – this framework of one supplier has been established to deliver one common e-catalogue and requisitioning solution to be available NHS Pip Hubs, their respective members and the NHS as whole.

Inventory Management Systems – this framework addresses the need to manage the flow of equipment and consumable stocks through an organisation in an efficient and cost effective manner.
