SCCL is Now Fully Part of the NHS

12 October 2021

On 1 October 2021, Supply Chain Coordination Limited (SCCL) the management function for NHS Supply Chain, became fully embedded into the NHS family, as ownership of its shares transferred from the Secretary of State for Health and Social to the NHS Commissioning Board, NHS England and NHS Improvement (NHSEI).

The change in share ownership will not impact on how SCCL operates, as there is no change. SCCL remains a separate organisation to NHSEI.

The change in share ownership does provide SCCL with greater opportunities to work more closely with the NHS, particularly on procurement, supply chain resilience and developing sustainable initiatives within NHS Supply Chain.

This is an important move for the organisation. We are looking forward to working more closely with NHSEI to align the way we work across our categories and continue to provide better value NHS trusts.

Andrew New, Chief Executive Officer, SCCL
