Get to the heart of procurement with NHS Supply Chain

A new heart valves framework agreement has been launched recently by NHS Supply Chain, to coincide with the British Heart Foundation’s National Heart Month.

This framework offers 242 new lines of equipment, boosting the total offering to circa 650 lines from eight suppliers, according to the announcement. Under the new agreement, a wider product range will aim to provide clinicians with the most appropriate product for their patient’s treatment.

Jonathan Oram, Buyer at NHS Supply Chain says: “Buying heart valves through our new framework will present several benefits to trusts. Not only does our new framework simplify the procurement process for trusts, but more importantly, it enables trust’s clinical support teams to focus on product evaluations rather than timely procurement procedures.”

“We are always striving to develop new procurement processes, which help trusts, buy more efficiently and generate greater savings,” he added.
