The eProcurement strategy: GS1 and PEPPOL standards in healthcare

Delivering better patient care through efficiency and transparency in NHS procurement

Solution providers

Any solution providers working with NHS Acute Trusts in England must become GS1 compliant if they wish to continue providing them with any service or product. This was mandated by the Department of Health in its eProcurement strategy (PDF) in 2014. The deadline for compliance is 2019/20.
