Purchase Direct gains Assured Supplier Status for NHS Telecoms

We are pleased to announce that Purchase Direct is now an assured supplier, listed within the Better Purchasing Framework (BPf) for the NHS.  This is excellent news as it means we can continue to offer our telephony service to practices across England, whilst they have the security and assurance that we have been approved and adhere to the NHS terms and conditions for practice contracts.

Benefits of buying from the Better Purchasing Framework

Making it easier to buy:  Comprehensive support from the Hub at every stage of the process.

Increased confidence:  We are committed to meeting the expectations and behaviours defined within the Commercial Standard.

Better value for money:  Use the collective buying power of the NHS to negotiate lower product costs on behalf of general practice.

NHS offers funding to practices for Telephony Upgrades

The NHS is currently offering financial support to practices when upgrading current telephone systems. Practices with urgent requirements, such as those whose contracts are coming to an end or who are on old analogue solutions, are required to use the BPf under current GP contract obligations. More information on the Digital Care Services Cloud Telephony framework can be found here.

Our trusted service means we can support practices with practical upgrades to suit individual requirements and more importantly, ensure that ongoing costs, following the NHS funding, remain cost effective.

Telephony Strength – We have been awarded the prestigious status as a Gamma Horizon Gold Partner due to the size of our client base, growth and superb customer service. Our Telecoms Team has vast experience and our engineers have been through the necessary accreditations and training to design, install and support an NHS approved system.

Market Knowledge – Purchase Direct has been providing telephone systems into the Surgery sector for over 10 years. We have provided excellent support to our customers over that time, whilst providing systems that have been tailored to support our clients’ requirements.

Our Gamma Horizon cloud-based system can be deployed anywhere where there is an internet connection, and this has proven to be extremely beneficial where staff are based across multi-site surgeries and may need to work from home.  The system also offers integration to EMIS and SystmOne clinical systems. Our solution allows for screen popping of patient records, call recording and call reporting can be added to the system.
