Contract Information

Contract Information Update - Office Solutions (Lots 2 - 7)

The following information gives an overview of the new Office Supplies and Solutions contract, and how any potential changes may affect you. The contract is split into two different category areas, lot 1 covers paper and card and lots 2-7 covers all other products in the category area (the full list can be found below).

Information will be updated on a regular basis and is subject to change, so please ensure you check this page regularly. For any further information please contact your Account Manager.

On 18 August the Department of Health issued communications confirming that the Office Solutions Category Tower will be the first to go live in October. From an operational perspective, trusts already using the NHS Supply Chain catalogue will see no change in the range of products and services on day one. It is anticipated there will be a phased approach to any changes and each trust will be contacted with more information as these roll out. A copy of this communication can be found here.
