If the NHS is so desperate for money, why is it happy to spend £850 on a £23 roller blind? NHS managers are accused of failing to crack down on ‘profiteering suppliers’ : Daily Mail.


The NHS premium is always there and the NHS needs to be forever vigilant to ensure they are being offered a competitive price.

For many years many manufacturers have seen the NHS as a way to engineer a large profit, whereas the NHS should be treated equally with any other purchasers. While no one wishes for these manufacturers to make a loss, they themselves need to take into account that for any penny that they take over and above for a reasonable profit is reducing the money available for the NHS to use in treating its patients, no funding is infinite.

This relates to all suppliers be they be Pharmaceutical, medical equipment or any others.
