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:

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.

Clinical and Digital Information Systems – this framework gives organisations access to a highly flexible suite of software applications which brings together key clinical and administrative data in one place

Nitric Oxide Therapy – the national framework helps trusts safely and efficiently procure all products needed for the supply of nitric oxide. 

Analysis and Reconciliation – this framework is for the provision of retrospective analytical reviews and analysis of core spend and transactions, which can result in the discovery and recovery of overpayments.

Modular / Pre-Fabricated Building Solutions – this framework offers a quick and compliatn route to market and covers awide range of modular/pre-fabricated buildings that can be purchased or hired.
