Hip + Knee Replacement Products

I would like to make a Freedom of Information request for information on contracts relating to the main suppliers of Primary Hip and Knee replacement products. 

Specifically, I would like answered for each of Hip and Knees: 

Primary* Hips 

Question Example Value (replace)
Current contract(s) start and end date for primary knees? Start: 22 Apr 2016, End: 21 Apr 2017

 

Is there an option to extend? Yes

 

If so, what is the extension length? 12 months

 

Contract route (tender/framework/direct) TOS Framework
The name of main supplier? Zimmer

 

 (for more than one contract please use multiple lines) 

  

Primary* Knees 

Question Example Value (replace)
Current contract(s) start and end date for primary knees? Start: 17 Dec 2015, End: 31 May 2018

 

Is there an option to extend? Yes

 

If so, what is the extension length? 12 months

 

Contract route (tender/framework/direct) TOS Framework
The name of main supplier? J&J

 

  

*‘Primary’ in this sense refers to products used in the replacement of Hip or Knee (as opposed to ‘Revision’ of existing replacements) 

If you could respond to this email with answers provided in the tables given this would be much appreciated. I am carrying out some research into current NHS contracts and would like to analyse the ensuing data for comparison of contracts across Trusts.

According to the official NHS FOI publication (https://www.england.nhs.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/foi-pub.pdf) section 3 identifies that Contracts and Tenders information should be available but I am unable to find this, hence this FOI request:

“We also expect to update this section in the coming months with information about our procurement processes and any live contracts and tenders”

Given that this request does not relate to pricing or volumes I don’t believe that this would prejudice the commercial interests of any person or the public authority itself.
