It will offer a range of high quality, fit for purpose, value for money garments for a variety of ambulance staff roles including paramedics and support staff.
The new framework is split into two lots; Lot 1 covers core uniform garments, items such as high visibility jackets, shirts, and trousers, which will be supplied by Cooneen at Work. Lot 2 is for general workwear for items such as footwear, belts and kippah. There are multiple suppliers awarded to Lot 2.
NHS Supply Chain: Hotel Services has worked to build on the success of the framework put in place by NHS Commercial Alliance, which was created in collaboration with the National Ambulance Procurement Board and the National Ambulance User Group.
We’re pleased to have got the framework to the award stage and are confident we’ve selected great suppliers who bring their broad expertise in the market.Kevin Childlow, Category Tower Director, NHS Supply Chain: Hotel Services
The next stage of the project includes a period of change from the existing uniform options and the introduction of the new items, which are due to be available from Autumn 2022.
