The Office and Outdoor Furniture framework aim is to enhance the original offering with the inclusion of additional lots that encompass a more comprehensive range of products and suppliers, including Outdoor Furniture, Children’s and Play Furniture and a Sustainability lot.

All suppliers on our framework will offer a bespoke design and planning service to manage the requirements for each individual trust to accommodate the different areas in a busy NHS setting. Including but not limited to Materials Management storerooms, outdoor areas and many more. Suppliers will also supply and install for larger projects. The suppliers on contract have the ability to service these projects as well as have flexibility around pricing.

Sustainability:
We care about sustainability and the environment, so we have selected suppliers with a strong track record in sustainable development for our frameworks. Trusts can take a more circular economy approach with our refurbishment and repair options available, that support the NHS netzero targets.

Contact Details

Returns:
The Office and Outdoor Furniture products tend to be made to order so this makes returning products difficult. If a return is required, check if any other department within your trust can use the product. If you need further assistance, speak to the supplier to establish whether they are willing to restock the product although there may be a restocking charge involved. Suppliers will usually look to come to an amicable agreement in these circumstances.
