Clinical involvement at heart of supply chain
Our commitment to meet the needs of users and support health and care professionals to deliver a consistently high standard of care makes their involvement central to the work of NHS Supply Chain.

Our approach to product assurance ensures that the ranges we offer reflect the needs and preferences of our health and care stakeholders, informed by their knowledge and experience as users, to support the health and social care system to deliver high quality care in an evolving environment.

Stakeholder involvement informs the whole procurement cycle at NHS Supply Chain, from initial scoping to customer delivery and beyond, as we reflect on feedback and seek to continually improve the quality and value of the ranges we offer.The changes made to the Operating Model in April 2018 have advanced our procurement aims for the health and care system to demonstrate value for money and ensure products are fit for purpose, safe,and representative of the needs of health and
care professionals, patients, and carers. For us, this is just the beginning, as going forward we have ambitious plans to further support more effective partnership working, acting as a system leader to strive for better quality and value for the NHS and our partners.
