Workforce Alliance

Bringing together people who care.


Crown Commercial Service and NHS Procurement in Partnership have been working together since 2019 as the NHS Workforce Alliance.

As the biggest public procurement partnership in the UK, we bring together a wealth of trusted procurement and commercial expertise to benefit the NHS.

NHS Procurement in Partnership is a collaboration of four procurement hubs:


  • NHS Commercial Solutions
  • East of England NHS Collaborative Procurement Hub
  • NHS London Procurement Partnership
  • NHS North of England Commercial Procurement Collaborative

Crown Commercial Service is an executive agency of the Cabinet Office, and the biggest public procurement organisation in the UK

Our expertise and influence can help shape the NHS for the better. Our collaborative relationships with the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), NHS England and Improvement, NHS Employers, Health Education England and other government bodies means we can help influence policy and implementation for the benefit of the NHS, and ultimately the patients we serve.
