Our organisation

NHS North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative (NOE CPC) is hosted by Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust and provides collaborative and bespoke procurement solutions to the public sector.

NOE CPC has an established and award-winning track record delivering procurement services over the last decade. Established in 2007, and wholly owned by the NHS, NOE CPC works with NHS trusts and pubic sector organisations to harness their buying power and influence the market in order to put in place competitive framework agreements. In addition to the core procurement service NOE CPC also supports its members with training, events, eCommerce and bespoke projects.

Procurement Services

NOE CPC’s procurement service focuses on the categories outside of the NHS Supply Chain operating model. This has enabled us to develop greater depth of knowledge and expertise in key areas:


Supported internally by our expert operational procurement team, this total focus means we can help you to take a category management approach and implement the benefits of local and collaborative working. Our category specific knowledge enables our team to keep ahead of developments, to identify opportunities for innovation and to offer you the best value solution – for the NHS, by the NHS.

To view our portfolio of framework agreements please visit our Contracts page.

Membership services

NOE CPC offers members tailored support and in-depth category knowledge. Our focus in specific category areas enables greater specialism and resource, this means we not only deliver framework agreements, but we deliver a service directly into the function.

NOE CPC membership provides service implementation, engagement and realisation of savings, opportunities and innovation, to deliver your specific solution. Membership with us is a collaborative partnership and mutual commitment and engagement will deliver the best possible outcome.
