Product Delist - Shermond Nitrile Gloves Performer range

Ref:2017/133

ICN number:133

  • Date:11/08/2017
  • Product area:Gloves Examination and Sterile Surgeons |

Following the price increase on Examination Gloves in April, we are experiencing further requests for price increases from suppliers.

Shermond has requested a price increase on their Nitrile Gloves Perfomer range. As the proposed price increase is above the current framework prices, we have declined the increase, and, as a consequence, the product range will be delisted with immediate effect.

This is in line with the guidance from the Department of Health, who continue to make it clear that suppliers must honour the prices agreed in procurement activities and only products that adhere to this policy position will be made available to trusts.

We are in the process of contacting all suppliers on the framework to establish continuity of supply until the launch of the Nationally Contracted Products exercise in quarter three of this NHS financial year.

Change:

  • Shermond has requested a price increase on their Nitrile Gloves Performer range and as a result we have delisted this product range.

Impact:

  • The Shermond Nitrile Gloves Perfomer range is unavailable to order with immediate effect.
  • Potential alternatives are available and customers will be able to make savings as the alternative product is lower in price.

Next Steps:

  • Customers are advised to log onto our website and review the potential alternative product lines listed at the link below.
  • The alternatives can be ordered through our online catalogue.
  • We expect to launch the Nationally Contracted Products exercise in quarter three of this NHS financial year, and we will keep you updated on the progress of this procurement exercise.
  • If you have any further questions, please contact your local NHS Supply Chain Account Manager or Customer Service Advisor.
