Benefits of the SBS Framework
Urszula Kolkowska, Category Manager for NHS Shared Business Services explains the benefits of NHS Trusts and public sector services using the SBS Framework: “The benefits of using the framework agreement are: the fact that it’s completely free to access, it offers you an ultra-compliance, you can purchase through a direct award element or run a mini competition against the framework.
“The framework itself is not only for NHS organisations, it is also for the wider public sector. Anyone from local authorities, education sector or blue light services can access the agreement.”
