NHS Supply Chain is preparing to launch the first national mobile and clinical solutions framework of its kind.

NHS Supply Chain is currently in the evaluation stages of the procurement process and is happy to discuss any organisation’s requirements today. This will ensure the customer and patient process is seamless. It also allows NHS organisations to get the mobile services they need at a competitive cost.
NHS Supply Chain will be providing a totally-bespoke solution to any NHS organisation that requires a short to medium-term expansion in service provision while maintaining care standards
NHS Supply Chain will offer standardised terms and conditions to support NHS organisations to get this bespoke service solution on site.
A fast-track paperwork process means that applications will be significantly quicker than current arrangements. All suppliers will be Care Quality Commission registered, hold Monitor licences as a minimum and will have been vetted via the Disclosure and Barring Service. They will also have insurance cover to a minimum of £5m as well as ISO9001 certification.
Optional services such as booking, reporting services and additional staff are also available to complement the service’s standard provision.

Emma Pearson, a buyer at NHS Supply Chain, said: “No other procurement organisation in the UK offers the same variety of clinical solutions for the healthcare sector. NHS Supply Chain will be providing a totally-bespoke solution to any NHS organisation that requires a short to medium-term expansion in service provision while maintaining care standards. Our set-up means we can meet any NHS organisation’s clinical service needs exactly and, if required, provide additional staffing.
“We believe our great offer will be of interest to imaging departments, theatre staff, finance directors, business managers, clinical commissioning groups and GPs. Our mobile and strategic clinical solutions framework is also ideal for health providers in emergency situations such as unprecedented demand to maintain good service levels with no increased demand on existing staff.”
