How it is used

NHS organisations buy services by running mini-competitions (‘call offs’) under one or more lots of the framework. Suppliers can only bid on procurements falling within the lots to which they have been accredited; however suppliers are able to collaborate across multiple-lot procurements. 

The HSS Framework can be used by any NHS organisation, including NHS Trusts, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), national Arm’s-Length Bodies, local authorities and a wide range of public sector bodies where they are supporting Integrated Care Systems (ICSs), Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs), or health and social care in general.
