ID Medical awarded supplier contract for NHS Commercial Alliance Region
The contract, which runs from 1 March 2014, outlines the key strategic procurement requirements of increased fill rates for member Trusts in the region and practical cost management.
Through the formal four-stage selection process, the ID Medical tender team detailed how its continuous improvement is achieved and provided a strongly evidenced presentation of how its industry-unique Simplicity platform helps Trusts to proficiently manage their bookings.
Deenu Patel, managing director at ID Medical said, “As a leading supplier across the majority of the region since 2008 with a number of exclusive supply agreements, this new contract now means that other NHS Trusts including those on the South East coast will also benefit from our unrivalled capacity to supply medical locums.

Working alongside the NHS Commercial Alliance through effective procurement we will help to ensure a superior quality of patient care is maintained whilst certifying a true return on investment on public service expenditure.
“We are delighted to be placed on the contract. It has further reinforced our supplier of choice status within the locum healthcare market.”
