The Buying Department (also known as Procurement) provides a purchasing and supplies service across the Bedford Hospital NHS Trust and acts as procurement agent for NHS Bedfordshire. Incorporated within this department are Receipt and Despatch, Materials Management and Contracting and Procurement.
Departments and wards are able to access from a range of stocked items, or order non-stock items via our online catalogue.
Bedford Hospital also works with the East of England Procurement Hub to maximise value for money across its full non pay spend.
All trust quotations go out via the ADB MultiQuote system, and all suppliers are advised to register on this system to receive RFQs from our Buying Department.
Unsolicited contact to the trust from suppliers will be ignored.
