Buying Solutions is the national procurement partner for all UK public services and is part of the Efficiency and Reform Group within the Cabinet Office.
This agreement will be beneficial to NHS member organisations and the broader public sector, by allowing them to procure from Telehealth Solutions without having to repeatedly tender and consequently cut out unnecessary tendering costs.
NHS organisations will now be able to contract with Telehealth Solutions directly, saving the cost of tendering processes, this is an added bonus due to the recent Government budget cuts. The health service has to make savings of £20bn over the next four years as demand for healthcare continues to grow. Buying Solutions will aid the recent cuts with its role is to deliver the best value for customers in central government and the wider public sector through the efficient procurement and supply of essential goods and services.
