Scan4Safety is working to mobilise the global market of healthcare suppliers towards GS1 and PEPPOL compliance. In mandating a set of recognised standards across all products and services, the Department of Health and Social Care are working to optimise supply chain efficiency.
The task of mobilising a global marketplace needs to be undertaken in a structured and methodological manner to ensure that the NHS remains accessible for suppliers of all sizes. For this reason, the Department of Health and Social Care has categorised the supplier base into the following groups for phased engagement:
- Medical and In-Vitro Diagnostic Devices
- Office and IT
- Estates and Facilities
