CLCH joint first Trust to be awarded Level 2 Procurement Standards

Published: 21st October 2021


CLCH is proud to be the joint first NHS Trust in London to have been awarded Level 2 (out of 3) of the NHS Towards Excellence Procurement Standards.  These national standards involve a rigorous preparation of evidence and are assessed by a panel of NHS providers and NHS England / Improvement. 

Procurement and supply management involves buying the goods and services that enable an organisation to operate in a profitable and ethical manner. Hence, this process has a key role to play in supporting NHS Trusts to deliver high quality patient care whilst ensuring value for money is achieved.

The NHS Procurement & Commercial Standards provide a framework for consistent approaches and practices, delivering benefits across the NHS in procurement performance.

This award recognises the achievement the Trust has made in developing procurement and commercial capability in order to deliver savings as well as support clinical and operational teams to find and purchase the best quality and value supplies needed. CLCH is the joint first Trust in London to achieve the Level 2 standards and only the fourth provider of community services in the country to do so.
