Getting the Best Deal on Contracts

Procurement across NHSScotland is not just about saving money.  As well as consistently achieving more than £20m of annual savings, many other benefits are delivered through implementing national contracts that:

  • make sure the products and services you use are fit for purpose
  • blend health service staff clinical and operational knowledge with NP's understanding of the marketplace to make sure that goods and services meet the current and future needs of the patients
  • take quality into account as well as price in making sure goods and services are best value for money
  • use the national distribution centre (NDC) where practical to provide the best value supply route in Scotland
  • provide continuous quality assurance after the contracts have been awarded
  • include public sector contracts reserved for supported businesses.

Without the support and help of a wide range of clinical and operational staff across NHSScotland, we would not be able to deliver and maintain quality services.
