The Department of Health and Social Care has established a subsidiary company to manage the new NHS procurement model, which aims to deliver more than £2bn of savings over five years.

The company has been registered in Companies House as Supply Chain Coordination Limited but is known as the “intelligent client coordinator”. It will employ more than 200 people who will manage how the NHS buys common goods and equipment.

It comes after the DHSC awarded contracts to seven organisations that will be tasked with making multimillion pound savings from buying goods that currently account for £5.7bn worth of NHS spending.
