Supply Chain Coordination Limited (SCCL) is a company Registered in England and Wales, with company number 10881715, to act as the management function of the NHS Supply Chain. The company is wholly owned by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care who provides direction to the Company through his appointed director on the Board and by a letter of entrustment a copy of which can be found here.
The Company acts as the management function within the NHS Supply Chain operating model for the NHS that will deliver savings of £2.4bn back into the frontline by 2023/2024. It will address the current fragmented procurement landscape which leads to widespread price variation in products and lack of consistency in the range of consumables used in the delivery of patient care. Instead it will leverage the buying power of the NHS by identifying the right clinically assured, high quality products at the best value through a more sustainable approach.
The Company is committed to providing strong commercial capability, a relentless approach to create value, gain competitive advantage and become the strategic procurement partner of choice for the NHS.
