Ramco named as sustainable asset management supplier on NHS Shared Business Services’ framework

Reuse specialist Ramco has been awarded a coveted place on the new NHS Shared Business Services’ (NHS SBS) Framework for Sustainable Healthcare Recycling and Waste.

The renewed framework agreement runs from 2023 – 2025 and focuses on sustainability as a key area. It’s a partnership programme between the NHS SBS and NHS Trusts in Bolton, Greater Manchester and Pennine Care across Manchester and Derby, to enable sustainable and straightforward procurement routes for waste management services for NHS and public sector organisations across the United Kingdom.

Through this framework, the NHS SBS intends to find a cost-effective and sustainable way of dealing with waste and unwanted assets, following its aim to reduce waste-associated carbon emissions by 80% before 2032.

Emma Clyne, NHS SBS Principal Category Manager - Estates and Facilities said: "The NHS SBS Sustainable Healthcare Recycling & Waste Management framework agreement offers an easily accessible and compliant procurement route with the very latest sustainable waste management offerings and sustainable management expertise obtainable."

With decades of experience of working with NHS Trusts, other emergency services and the wider public sector, Ramco is proud to be named as a supplier on the framework. The reuse specialist is listed within lot 2 ‘Sustainable Asset Management/Waste Re-Purposing Solution and Technology’.

Since 1996, Ramco has been finding value in surplus assets and extending product lifecycles – playing a key role in the circular economy and stopping fully functioning equipment from going to landfill. Crucially too, Ramco’s service clears precious space and generates a financial return from the sale of goods. Millions of items have been rehomed over the years including generators, technology, ambulances and specialist medical equipment.
