Important COVID-19 Supplier Updates

Impact on HCTED Programme

The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the NHS England and NHS Improvement specialised High-Cost Tariff-Excluded Devices (HCTED) programme.

To allow NHS providers to devote maximum operational effort to the NHSE/I COVID-19 action plan*, NHSEI have advised a temporary pause on any new migrations to the central supply route for HCTEDs.

Where an NHS provider has completed migration to the central supply route, they must continue to place orders via this route.

*This action plan was laid out in a direct communication to NHS Providers from Simon Stevens and Amanda Pritchard on 17 March 2020.
