Introduction top

The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust was established on 1st April 2011 when Monitor authorised The Hillingdon Hospital NHS Trust to be an NHS Foundation Trust. The Trust provides secondary care health services at two hospitals in North West London; Hillingdon and Mount Vernon.

Hillingdon Hospital is the only general hospital in the London Borough of Hillingdon and offers a wide range of services including accident and emergency, inpatient care, day surgery, outpatient clinics and maternity services. The Trust's services at Mount Vernon Hospital include routine day surgery at the new treatment centre, a minor injuries unit, and outpatient clinics. The Trust also acts as a landlord to a number of other organisations that provide health services at Mount Vernon, including East & North Hertfordshire NHS Trust¿s cancer centre.

As an authority funded from the public purse we have a legal requirement to comply with EU Procurement Directives enshrined in UK Statute as the Public Contracts Regulations. This is important to us as by our compliance to these regulations, not only do evidence that we operate in an open and transparent manner, but:
 We have a completely transparent, legal and auditable framework to our procurement activities.
 Our processes help us obtain maximum value for money by allowing the open marketplace (including local and SME organisations) freedom of opportunity to trade with us.
 We have assurances that we comply with the law governing the spending of public monies.
 We provide maximum protection to our staff, client and supplier base

This Procurement Portal is a completely new enhancement to our web site. It offers suppliers the ability to view contract announcements in real time and uses BiP Solutions' e-notice service, for placing EU and non-EU public notices, and facilitates the publication of these notices immediately on this procurement portal giving suppliers instant access to the contract opportunities. By publishing this information we offer suppliers the opportunity to identify future opportunities, respond to current opportunities and to view which suppliers have already been awarded contracts along with the goods and/or services purchased.
THH Procurement will use this Delta e-tendering suite and standardised tender documentation. We will advertise our above OJEU threshold contracts on Tenders Electronic Daily (TED) and below threshold contracts opportunities on both Delta (http://www.supplycontracts.co.uk/) and MultiQuote (http://www.multiquote.com). You will need to apply to any adverts placed on those sites when so published.

Purchase Plans top

- Description of scheduled purchases, plans, policy and practices.

Procurement Plan

Capital Equipments (including IT) are bought to an annually agreed plan. This plan is not released before April/May each year. All Capital Equipment Requirements are tendered either through OJEU or Multiquote/Delta Quick Call (dependant on projected value).

Contract Renewal are identified 180 days prior to expiry of existing agreements. Dependant on value, tenders/call for competitions are undertaken in line with value/volumes directed within Trust Standing Finacial Instructions and Public Contracts Regulations.

Purchasing Policy/Procurement Policy

The Purchasing and Supplies department provides a pool of procurement knowledge and experience to the Trust with regard to all procurement requiremments - from inception to completion. This is done in a number of ways:

Ensuring best possible cost savings
Sourcing of suppliers
Production of specifications
Clinical evaluations
Pricing and negotiation
Contracting
Tendering
Supplier assessment, including credit checks, ethical standards and quality.
Ordering systems (i.e.e-procurement, non-stock requisitions, NHS Supply Chain etc).
Receipt and distribution
Materials management
Service Level Agreements
Legal issues (i.e. compliance to EU regulation, UK legislation, Trust policies and procedures etc)
Management of suppliers and their representatives

Trust Policy and Procedue for Contracts and Tenders are regulated by the requirements of Trust Standing Financial Instructions and the Public Contracts Regulations.

The Trust only utilise suitably qualified supplier in our supply chain. Wherever possible we make use of Framework Agreements negotiated centally (i.e. Government Procurement Services, NHS Supply Chain, etc) or local collaboration (i.e. London Procurement Programme, etc). Where Framework Agreements are utilised, wherever possible, it is the Trust policy enter into mini-competition with Framework Providers to maximise value for money opportunities.

Each tender or call for competition is ran on a formal evaluated process prior to awarding the contract using a transparent set of criteria. These criteria are set at beginning of the tender process and are not changed once the tender has been initiated to ensure fairness.
As opportunities to work with the Trust become available, these contracts will be advertised through this portal.

The Trusts Purchasing Strategy (currently under review) is approved by the main Trust Board and can be accessed through our website at http://intranet/departments/purchasing_s

Purchasing Practices/Procurement Procedures

THH are at the forefront of a project with Coding International which seeks to produce common coding across the NHS (NSV Coding). As a result we have become a reference site for Coding International and have been visited by other Trusts wishing to improve their services using the same processes. We have also recently developed the first e-procurement system in the NHS to fully manage our material supplies and labour sourcing within our Estates Department.

We are currently investigating the impact of DH Directives relating to GS1 Coding and the potentiability of cross matching to NSV.

We primarily source purchase and supply goods and services to meet all of the requirements of our customers. This includes quality, cost, environmental concerns and ethical purchasing to meet the overall target of value for money for you, our patients. In order to provide these services, the department is on the leading edge of advancements in e-procurement, materials management and efficient stock holding.

In the event that tendering activities produce alternate providers or products, no such provider or products are introduced to the Trust without a due dilligence process being undertaken on that provider or product - this may require potential providers to provide FOC product for evaluation (especially clinical related product).
