Medical Swabs

Reference: NCP26
Type: NCP
Start Date: 14 March 2022
Expiry Date: None

Since 2017 this product category has been through two NCP procurement exercises which delivered over £1 million national savings. As the General Wound Care framework has been re-tendered, the associated Medical Swabs NCP was also renewed. The aim of the renewal was to mitigate the implementation of supplier framework agreement pricing, which would have led to significant price increases for the NHS.

If the NCP had not been renewed and framework pricing had been implemented, a national cost pressure of approximately £1 million would have been realised. The procurement exercise has however, been able to mitigate the national cost pressure down to £220,000.
