The NHS Supply Chain Operating Model

The NHS Supply Chain operating model is now in place with 7 specialist Category Tower Service Providers (CTSPs) delivering medical, capital and non-medical products and services, and two support services for logistics and supporting technology. Meet all Category Towers at P4H England within the NHS Supply Chain Procurement Pavilion.

The management function of the new NHS Supply Chain, Supply Chain Coordination Limited (SCCL), manages the Towers and ensures that they work on behalf of the NHS to deliver clinical and non-clinically assured, high-quality products at the best value.

The Towers will do this through a more sustainable approach, including more rigorous and responsive management of supplier accountability, as well as through category strategy development. Their goal of saving £2.4 billion by 2022-23 will be achieved by:

  • Reducing unwarranted price variation and increase product range optimisation across the NHS;
  • Delivering clinically assured, high-quality products at the best value and supporting procurement activity across the NHS;
  • Leveraging the buying power of the NHS at a national level;
  • Increasing usage of NHS Supply Chain from 40% to 80%
