Supplier Board

Supplier Board

The Board is an open forum, under the governance of the National Procurement Council, for constructive and proactive discussion between Industry/Trade Associations, NHS Supply Chain, the Department of Health and the NHS BSA.

It is an action orientated group whose aims are to share visions, best practice and objectives, to set standards and ways of working for the future and to deliver benefits to the NHS.


A communication has been sent to all NHS Supply Chain customers from Richard Douglas, Director General, Finance and NHS, Department of Health and Nick Gerrard, CEO, NHS Supply Chain to all of NHS Supply Chain’s suppliers.

As you will be aware, the NHS is facing an unprecedented financial challenge, with Trusts needing to achieve £2bn savings from their procurement activities. NHS Supply Chain has been tasked by the Department of Health and Cabinet Office to deliver a cash releasing savings target of £150 million by March 2016.

The email , which has been sent to all suppliers by NHS Supply Chain, contains a link to a letter that sets out some of the ways that NHS Supply Chain is committed to driving this value and calls on all its suppliers, including many of your members, to work in partnership with NHS Supply Chain to help deliver these critical targets for the NHS.
