Contract Information

Syringes, Needles and Associated Products


This framework starts on 3 January 2017, runs for 48 months and ends on 2 January 2021.

This new framework sees the following product areas merge together; syringes, needles and associated products, epidural / spinal products and kits, regional anaesthesia packs and accessories. These products are used across numerous departments in hospital trusts and wider healthcare settings.

The European Legislation for Safety launched in 2013 and there are a large number of safety products listed on the framework agreement. The framework is flexible enough to include new technologies and it is anticipated that as more trusts switch to safety products, sales of ‘conventional’ products will start to decrease and will ultimately be discontinued where appropriate. You are also supported in the transition to Safer Sharps due to an extensive range of both conventional and safer products. However, it is a requirement that trusts receive full training on the safety products they use, prior to purchase.
