NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership working to deliver best practice in NHS procurement

22 February 2017

Following the success of the first three collaborative frameworks created for the NHS (Total Orthopaedic Solutions, Total Cardiology Solutions, and the National Clinical Staffing framework) the NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership (NHS CPP) is due to launch four more frameworks in 2017.

NHS CPP is the culmination of the collaborative working of four NHS procurement organisations: NHS Commercial Solutions, East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub, NHS North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative and NHS London Procurement Partnership. By joining forces NHS CPP represents approximately 60% of NHS trusts and influences between £6.0 billion and £7.5 billion of NHS non-pay spend.

NHS CPP is testament to Lord Carter’s vision with its three successful frameworks: the award-winning Total Orthopaedic Solutions framework which has saved over £18m for trusts since its launch; the highly commended Total Cardiology Solutions which has revolutionised the marketplace for a full range of cardiology products; and, most recently, the National Clinical Staffing framework covering Nursing, Medical Locums, Dental and AHP/HSS – an NHS Improvement-accredited national framework.

NHS CPP anticipates echoing its past successes with four new projects: the newly launched e-Catalogue and e-Requisitioning Solution – already twice shortlisted for the 2017/18 GO Awards; the imminent Clinical Consumables framework; the Theatre Surgery Consumables framework; and the Complete Ophthalmology Solutions framework, both of which are due to launch in March 2017.
