What you can expect from us
Our Category Managers are procurement specialists in their product field who can give guidance and support to identify savings opportunities. They will work with you to ensure trust objectives are clearly identified early in the process.
|Our team will work with your clinical, procurement and directorate leads to review opportunities available to your trust by utilising the framework.
|Options available will include supporting your trust to complete a full ophthalmic spend review and identify ‘quick wins’ or ‘as is’ savings options.
|Quick wins are identified by completing a full review of a trusts’ ophthalmic spend and then benchmarking this against the Complete Ophthalmology Solutions Framework Agreement.
|The outcome and analysis will identify opportunities where your trust can save money by doing nothing other than providing your consent to migrate to Complete Ophthalmology Solutions pricing and transact via the NHS Supply Chain eDirect route.
|The Complete Ophthalmology Access Agreement will need to be signed and returned by the authorised procurement lead. This will enable our Ophthalmology Team to notify suppliers of the appropriate price band to be activated to ensure the correct catalogue pricing is available to your trust, enabling orders to be placed.
|It is also possible for product alternative analyses to be completed for various lots within the framework agreement which highlight savings that can be accessed through other suppliers available within the framework agreement.
|The framework can be accessed with no commitment, or commitments for two, three or four years at any point during the lifetime of the agreement.
|Additional innovative offers may be offered by suppliers which could be available to you. Prices will be fixed for the commitment period once the Complete Ophthalmology Solutions Access Agreement has been signed by the procurement leads at your trust and returned to us.
Get in touch with us at any time but of course the sooner the better – especially when you are hoping to maximise the opportunities available.
