National Healthcare Uniform – For the supply of a National Healthcare Uniform for Trusts across NHS England. There are approximately 667k nursing staff and Allied Health Professionals across NHS England. Existing uniforms are generally replaced on a rolling schedule based upon wear and tear. The number of garments issued to each Healthcare Professional varies across trusts but is typically 4 to 5 sets per professional. The current supply chain is complex with a proliferation of styles, colours, embroidery and rank identifiers. This opportunity is for an alignment of specification for Trusts across NHS England. This opportunity involves working with Tower 11 and other stakeholders in producing 1 design which is anticipated to cover either a smart scrub / scrub or tunic with a pair of trousers and/or dress. We anticipate awarding to more than 1 supplier utilising the competitive dialogue tender process.
