How to Order
There are two routes available to purchase these products:
- Direct supply
- eDirect via our Online Catalogue.
Direct supply – You will need to obtain a quotation through NHS Supply Chain to benefit from National Framework Agreement Pricing.
To place an order, first contact our Endoscopy team who will give you a unique reference number to detail on your purchase order which covers the required equipment.
eDirect – products are ordered through our Online Catalogue but are delivered directly to you by the supplier or a courier. Some products have longer lead times than our standard 48 hours so will be delivered by the supplier or courier subject to the confirmed lead time.
eDirect products will be invoiced by NHS Supply Chain directly to your finance department. These items will be consolidated into one invoice along with any other items you order.
See our Downloads section for the product listing detailing the products, pricing information and ordering codes.
