NHS Shared Business Services are a national provider of frameworks for the entirety of the UK Public Sector. NHS SBS aims to provide a compliant route to market for all client needs, delivering industry standard levels of procurement options.

The aim of this framework is to provide the NHS and wider public sector clients with a compliant route to market for the provision of quality and value for money construction works projects from a mixture of Tier 1 and regional contractors. The framework provides pricing structures such as overheads and profits, design fees and rate cards for members of staff and is suitable for Design and Build, Build only and Refurbishment projects. The frameworks have been designed with flexibility in mind. This includes providing flexible choice of contact terms, wider regionalised supplier base, clear pricing structure and collaborative framework terms using the FAC-1.

All public sector organisations across the UK including NHS, local authorities, universities, schools, housing associations, police, blue lights, central government and all third sector organisations can access the framework.
