Supply Chain Coordination Limited (SCCL) is the commercially astute management function for NHS Supply Chain
In 2018 a new NHS Supply Chain operating model was established, aligned to the conclusions of Lord Carter of Coles independent review of unwarranted variation in NHS procurement published in 2016.
The report found that there was widespread price variation and a lack of consistency in the range of consumables used in the delivery of patient care. The model aims to deliver savings of £2.4 billion back into NHS frontline services by 2024.
SCCL was incorporated on 1 April 2018 as a company Registered in England and Wales, with company number 10881715. Wholly owned by the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care who provides direction to the company through his appointed director on the Board and by a letter of entrustment.
