Customer and Supplier Boards

NHS Customer Board for Procurement and Supply

The NHS Customer Board for Procurement and Supply aims to influence and lead procurement strategy by engaging with the senior stakeholders who understand the challenges faced by the NHS. Particular focus is placed on the new NHS Supply Chain operating model.

The NHS Customer Board was set up by NHS Supply Chain in 2011 and was refreshed in November 2018 to align to the new operating model. Sir Ian Carruthers OBE is the chair of the National Board which oversees four regional boards, North, Midlands, South and London.

The Customer Boards meet quarterly and the next series of virtual meetings is as follows:

  • 10 November 2020 London
  • 11 November 2020 Midlands
  • 25 November 2020 South
  • 30 November 2020 North
