The NHS is one of the world's biggest and most complex organisations. As a result, finding a way to market your goods and services isn't always easy. On these pages you will find information about the types of goods and services procured by NHS SBS and a list of organisations that take advantage of our resulting contracts and frameworks. There is also a link to our Complete Tender Management (CTM) system, the e-tendering solution that enables you to keep up to date with and bid for contract opportunities. We believe there are significant benefits to suppliers of working with NHS SBS including:
  • Reduced cost of sales
  • Simplified tendering processes
  • Access to a large market through national collaboration
  • More commitment based arrangements
  • Entry point for innovation
  • Access to other public sector agencies

Public sector organisations are able to access individual contracts and frameworks, by invitation, providing they fall within the organisational description and geographical scope of the agreement(s) as stated in the OJEU notice and Invitation to Tender documentation. Associate Members are therefore defined as public sector bodies who have requested access to a particular contract or framework.
