Eversheds appointed by NHS purchasing and Supply Agency4th September 2008
International law firm Eversheds has been appointed by the NHS Purchasing and Supply Agency (PASA) in a bid involving a rigorous tender process, and competition from 10 other firms that submitted a tender.
The two to four year framework agreement will see Eversheds advising on a full range of legal matters including commercial contracts, procurement, disputes, corporate governance, property and employment.
Eversheds already works for the Department of Health on central procurement and has supported the NHS Supply Chain (the outsourced NHS Logistics function) since its outsourcing to DHL/ Exel in 2006. This latest success is a panel appointment which will see NHS PASA extending its framework agreement to two selected firms.
NHS PASA is an executive agency of the Department of Health. It works to ensure that the NHS in England makes the most effective use of its resources by getting the best possible value for money when purchasing goods and services.
Bill Gilliam, head of healthcare at Eversheds, comments:
"We are delighted to have been appointed by NHS PASA; cementing our position as a leading healthcare law firm. What won us a place on this framework agreement is our approach to project management and flexibility on pricing models in conjunction with our extensive capabilities and highly experienced team.
"This has been a triumphant 24 months for the Eversheds healthcare team which in June saw us winning the HealthInvestor Healthcare Law Firm of the Year award 2008.We have picked up a number of recent wins and are one of a select few law firms to be appointed by the CATALIST Legal panel to both its 'Full Commercial' and 'Major Projects' categories. We look forward to working with NHS PASA and continuing our extensive work in both the public and private sector."
