Catalogue Content Management Services

Standardised, compliant, controlled ordering processes for your organisation.

Catalogue Content Management Services image

Lord Carter of Coles' report requires NHS organisations to order 80% of their goods via catalogues, to drive savings on contracted, standardised products and reduce the amount of clinical time spent on ordering. Many organisations load catalogue content into a dedicated system or directly into their financial solution, but maintaining data accuracy and delivering content rich with images and GTINS to support the Scan4Safety agenda can be time consuming and chaotic.


The Catalogue Content Management Service from NHS Shared Business Services:

  • Provides a dedicated catalogue management team, made up of experienced procurement professionals, available throughout business hours
  • Creates catalogue content to reflect your contract portfolio, monitoring product compliance and validity and available pricing, from which your requisitioners can order
  • Supports sourcing and benchmarking activities to ensure all catalogue data is offering true best value and is compliant with your SFIs and procurement legislation
  • Maintains data to ensure product and price accuracy
  • Standardises the product range to avoid duplication and drive enriched content
  • Designs a catalogue management strategy in partnership with your team to deliver a focused catalogue in line with clinical need
  • Delivers insight via monthly reports on your catalogue data, its usage and any cost saving opportunities, and a monthly service forum with your NHS SBS catalogue team
