The NHS Shared Business Services Framework

So, you will have seen a lot of social noise across our media channels recently about the NHS SBS (Shared Business Services) Framework and you may be wondering what exactly is it and what does it mean for you?

The NHS SBS drive procurement and commercial efficiency across the health sector in the UK, striving to deliver high quality patient and social care. This is done by improving the quality of goods and services through world-class procurement and commercial services, providing project management support that meets the requirements of clients, partners and stakeholders.

All done with the primary goal of delivering the maximum value possible to its clients.

The newly launched framework is to identify a small number of competent, pre-selected suppliers to help the NHS SBS’s members simplify and accelerate their transformation programmes. risual are proud to announce that we have a position on all four lots released by the framework, including the following:

  • Lot 1 – Solution Design and Consultancy
  • Lot 2 – Infrastructure, Software and Platform as a Service (IaaS, PaaS and SaaS) offerings
  • Lot 3 – Cloud Support Services
  • Lot 4 – End to end cloud solutions

This framework will allow risual to deliver value and positive outcomes to over 60 NHS Trusts, 30 Care Commissioning Groups and NHS England along with many more associate members across the UK public sector.
