Important Customer Notice NCP

Ref: 2021/1224 ICN Number: 1224

Change: 

  • This NCP procurement exercise was undertaken for Three Panel Knee Immobilisers.
  • The aim was to rationalise the number of suppliers and products, create savings through consolidating volume, and to aggregate national demand to provide a sustainable competitive price for the NHS.
  • This has been achieved by awarding to two suppliers (including the market leader) and rationalising down to nine product lines.

Impact:

  • It’s been awarded to two suppliers with split depot as follows:
  • Promedics Orthopaedic Limited (80% volume – five product codes) – Alfreton, Bridgwater, Maidstone, Normanton and Rugby
  • Thuasne UK (20% volume – four product codes) – Runcorn and Suffolk Park
  • If Promedics customers (Alfreton, Bridgwater, Maidstone, Normanton or Rugby) require larger than 24”, the national codes are still available to order through our online catalogue.
  • As of 16 May 2021, the products of the unsuccessful suppliers will be delisted from the online catalogue for a minimum period of 12 months.
  • The unsuccessful suppliers are:
    Beagle Orthopaedic Ltd
    Benecare
    BSN Medical Ltd
    Chaneco
    Crest Medical Ltd
    Kare Ltd
    Medi UK
    Ossur UK Ltd
    Performance Health
    Talarmade Ltd.
  • The NCP products will become available to order on 17 May 2021.
  • There are potential national savings of £174,177 (38.51%).
