Nationally Contracted Products

The Nationally Contracted Products (NCP) programme is co-led by NHS Improvement and the Department of Health and is operationalised by the NHS Business Services Authority through NHS Supply Chain.

NCP is a procurement tool that aims to operationalise the Carter Report recommendations to harness the national buying power of the NHS, remove “unwarranted product variation” and improve efficiency.

The NCP catalogue is continuously expanding to include products that offer the lowest sustainable national price to the NHS and we are pleased to inform you that the products listed below have now been included in the NCP catalogue.

Surety of supply is essential to this programme and we will therefore be enabling 100% availability of all NCP products through increased stock holding.

The following NCP’s will be launching by 31 October 2017:
