Dynamic Purchasing System

A dynamic purchasing system (DPS) has been established by the national Commercial and Procurement Hub to provide a compliant procurement process by which online consultation systems can be procured.

This DPS is for clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) to procure online consultation systems on behalf of general practices or legally incorporated practice affiliations  within their commissioning area(s).

CCGs wishing to procure online consultation services under this DPS will have to follow a mini competition process. There is no provision for the direct award of contracts under this DPS.

Requests to access the DPS (including the suite of documents) should be made to the National Commercial and Procurement Hub via: Commercial.procurementhub@nhs.net.

Once your request is processed and access granted you will receive:

  • Template documentation.
  • Relevant guidance.
  • Current list of approved suppliers (including up to date contact details).

On submission of the completed documentation including planned timescales and DPS access request, the National Commercial and Procurement Hub will alert the market on your behalf.
