New NHS terms and conditions published

The Department of Health has this month published the new versions of the standard NHS terms and conditions for the supply of goods and for the provision of services.

The terms & conditions were developed in conjunction with Mills & Reeve and have received positive feedback from the key trade body for NHS suppliers, the Association of British Healthcare Industries.

The Department has described them as “their first step in the NHS acting as a single customer”. The NHS spends over £20 billion a year on goods and services, which typically counts for around thirty per cent of the operating costs of each hospital trust.
