NHS Supply Chain, through dedicated Department of Health funding for eye care, is offering NHS organisations equipment from industry-leading manufacturers to help provide enhanced patient care.
By offering world-class equipment at unbeatable prices, NHS Supply Chain can help the NHS save important resources and divert money elsewhere for patient care
Through careful negotiation with Britis- based suppliers, NHS Supply Chain is able to considerably reduce the price per unit of retinal cameras. This enables the NHS to access the latest equipment at a highly-competitive price and further reduce the cost of these high-tech medical cameras as part of a NHS Supply Chain framework.
NHS Supply Chain has been helping to improve the nation’s access to sight-saving technology. The framework utilises bulk purchase abilities to pass on cost savings to NHS organisations around the UK for this important medical equipment.
NHS Supply Chain is currently collaborating with NHS Wales to roll out retinal cameras and help provide the best care possible before introducing them out across England.
Philippa Wright, a buyer at NHS Supply Chain, said: ‘I’m very excited about our latest offer. Our highly-advanced retinal cameras can help save the sight of some of our most-ill patients while helping the NHS to meet its efficiency targets.
“By offering world-class equipment at unbeatable prices, NHS Supply Chain can help the NHS save important resources and divert money elsewhere for patient care. This is a great offer for NHS organisations, as retinal scanners can help save the sight of hundreds of people across the UK."
