Floor Stock Wholesaler
The Floor Stock framework agreement was established as an alternative solution to NHS Supply Chain for a core list of products to drive cash releasing savings whilst also providing an alternative supply route for LPP members in London.
Benefits of the contract
The major benefit of the floor stock contract is that it enables trusts to achieve cash releasing savings of circa 9% over matched products available via NHS Supply Chain without impacting on internal distribution arrangements or causing an increase in distribution costs at trust level.
Trusts can choose to continue to use their current materials management systems and equipment routing to the Floor Stock supplier. However the framework agreement can enable trusts to enhance their materials management solutions where appropriate.
The framework agreement provides for the supply and delivery, picked and packed by ward and department, of a range of core medical and surgical consumables.
