NHS Supply Chain clinical and product assurance

What it does

Enables clinically assured products to be purchased from its catalogue and is the preferred route of purchase for most NHS organisations

What it doesn't do

It doesn’t recommend products.  Customers choose which products to purchase based on their clinical needs from its catalogue of clinically assured products.

Data sharing

If your technology is identified as being potentially suitable for future procurement activities then your product data may be shared with NHS Supply Chain’s relevant category tower service providers. 

If your technology is not selected for consideration for future procurement opportunities, data will not be shared.

Response time

A member of the Patient Safety and Innovation Team will review the information you have submitted within 20 working days. You will only be contacted if the technology is deemed to be ‘exceptional’ and requires additional support to navigate through NHS Supply Chain processes.
