What does it cover?
This framework agreement allows for Contracting Authorities to procure managed services for clinical or non-clinical requirements that are not tied to a particular original equipment manufacturer (OEM).
The service offering includes but is not limited to:
• Diagnostic Imaging
• Interventional Radiology
• Cardiology
• Catheter Laboratories
• Pathology
• Point of Care
• Surgery
• Endoscopy
• IM&T

{as appropriate}.

Why should I use it?
• OJEU COMPLIANT
A detailed procurement exercise has taken place to ensure that suppliers selected are appropriate in terms of meeting all legislative requirements. The framework contains provision for direct award and further competition, if required. NHS SBS can advise on a case by case basis.
• EXPERTISE
This framework allows Contracting Authorities to benefit from the expertise of the awarded suppliers in selecting the most economically advantageous solutions to meet their clinical and business requirements.
• FUNDING AND GROWING DEMAND
Pressures on public finance and capital equipment replacement with limited budgets means organisations are limited in the scope of decisions they can make. Access to third party finance and expertise can result in swifter access to diagnosis for patients, better treatment and
care, and optimised financial solutions.
• QUALITY
Robust market testing to appoint recognised suppliers who provide tried and tested solutions.
