Contract Overview

The Disposable Procedure Packs Framework Agreement awarded by HealthTrust Europe (HTE) is designed to support the NHS and other Public Sector Organisations in purchasing procedure packs of various descriptions from a range of reputable suppliers. The framework agreement also offers a simple, compliant and flexibility route to competitive pricing, either by the direct award criterion or through further price refresh options provisions under the framework agreement. 

Free, quick and easy to access: There is no charge to customers for accessing this framework agreement. Once you have been set up to access the framework agreement, a call-off can be made either by direct access or further competition. The process is straightforward and simply requires that an order form (access agreement) be exchanged and completed to ensure your compliance.  

Access to market leading suppliers: The majority of leading suppliers are available through the framework.  

Compliant route to market: The framework will save procurement time and cost. It is fully compliant with the Public Contract Regulations and with EU procurement directives, so you do not have to carry out a full EU compliant tender yourself.  

Product coverage: The framework offers an extensive range of procedure pack coverage of a supplier’s pack portfolio giving you access to a vast range of procedure packs Consolidation: The framework provides the incentive for customers to consolidate their requirement with one supplier  

Assigned support: HTE will provide support for call-off processes and the ongoing management of call-off agreements. Reduced costs: The framework offers customers the opportunity to reduce costs by procuring products at competitive prices breaks
