Contract Information

Suction Consumables

NHS Supply Chain has successfully retendered the Suction Consumables Framework which now offers circa 1400 lines from leading suppliers.

However, as part of this tender process we have seen selected price increases.  These price increases are due to rising raw material and energy costs.  NHS Supply Chain has worked with suppliers to keep prices increases to a minimum and will continue to work with you to ensure you have opportunities to make savings.

We believe this Framework Agreement still provides value to the NHS and as soon as commodity prices allow, prices will be reduced.  To mitigate any cost pressures you may experience please see below for opportunities to make savings.
