Commercial Procurement Collaborative



To develop NOE CPC as a long-term sustainable business that delivers value to all our customers: patients, employees, suppliers and the wider health and social care community.


To be the leading NHS commercial procurement centre that connects and collaborates within health and social care.


To be the preferred commercial procurement partner who delivers value and compliance to all our customers.


NOE CPC has six core values, these are our beliefs, ideals and expected behaviours. We feel strongly about our values internally and know that these are also shared with our members – creating a positive culture within collaborative procurement.

Our core values are:

  • Compassion
  • Improving lives
  • Respect & dignity
  • Commitment to quality of service
  • Working together
  • Everyone counts

Supporting our local health and social
care communities

Our aim is to make a positive impact through the services we provide and to help improve the social and economic development of communities.

We recognise that the needs of each community are different and so we build relationships at a local level to ensure we address their specific needs and make as valuable a difference as possible.

How and why we do this:

  • To develop long term relationships with our local health and social care communities and to ensure they benefit both socially and economically

  • We work collaboratively with our customers, suppliers and local businesses to maximise the positive impact that we have on local communities. By building these relationships it can help inform how we deliver our services for our customers and their patients

  • Working with local universities we can provide work placements to give local students essential experience of working in the public sector.

NOE CPC is helping to deliver the transformation of the health sector demanded by Government and the public alike, and is contributing to and working closely with the Department of Health on the procurement strategy.
