Delivering your services efficiently and effectively can be challenging when equipment is outdated. 

Many hospitals have reached the point where they feel dated and in need of a refurbishment. Furniture and equipment aren’t fit for purpose, and spaces aren’t well utilised.   

The Design, Furniture and Appliances 2 Framework Agreement meets the equipment needs of the NHS, supporting you to reach the net zero 2040 target. The framework agreement enables the procurement, hire, reuse, and repair of equipment to deliver your services efficiently and effectively, while improving sustainability outcomes through the use of low energy products and recyclable packaging.  

The development of acoustic interior design solutions enables Trusts to create an environment where patients feel calm, so they can rest and heal, and feel more at home. 

The framework agreement supports theGreening Government Commitment by allowing the procurement of more sustainable and efficient products whilst achieving overall value for money. It also ensures that suppliers support the commitment with product packaging that is reusable or recyclable. 

Design, Furniture and Appliances 2 forms part of a wider solution that focusses on, ‘future proofing estates and infrastructure’, helping to achieve NHSE estates and infrastructure targets.
