We are currently doing some research around the procurement of medical equipment within NHS Trusts in the United Kingdom and require information that relates to the organisation’s live contracts around the procurement of medical equipment.


1.       Airway Management

Can you please provide me the full version of your contracts that lists all the contracts the organisation has around medical equipment? I would prefer you send me this information in an excel format.

Please do not send me a simple contract’s register that only list contract dates and supplier names as I require department, categories and contract owner. The more the better.

We are currently conducting this research within your region and have also contacted similar organisations to obtain the same information.

Please if possible, can you include:

  1. Existing Supplier
  2. Annual Spend
  3. Contract Brief
  4. Contract Dates
  5. Department
  6. Product Categories – The more the better.
  7. Contract Description
  8. Contract Owner including job title and email address
  9. If possible can you also provide me with the contact details of the person responsible for uploading and publishing the contract’s register.

The cost of compliance to collate the information sought above would exceed the appropriate limit under Section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act.
