Patient Dry Wipes

Type: New Contract Reference: 2021/S 000-006463 Supply Route: Stocked, Blue Diamond, eDirect
Start Date: 14 February 2022 Expiry Date: 31 December 2024

This framework starts on 14 February 2022, runs for 35 months and ends on 31 December 2024. There is an option to extend for an additional 12 months.

There are two Lots on this new framework:

  • Lot 1: Non-Maceratable Wipes
  • Lot 2: Maceratable Wipes

Lot 2 is the more sustainable option as the maceratable wipes are made from natural and organic materials and are virtually plastic free.

Patient Dry Wipes are used for a multitude of purposes and are used by the majority of departments within an NHS Trust. These products have been independently tested for performance against the defined specification to ensure they are fit for purpose.

Savings Opportunities
The framework provides a National Pricing Matrix (NPM) from a number of suppliers, which will allow savings opportunities for customers who are able to consolidate their purchasing.
