Once you have confirmation that your idea will be funded by Royal Surrey Charity, you can proceed with the procurement process. All purchases made through the Trust should go through HPL (Healthcare Partners ltd). An accurate quote will need to be included in your application for funding, so it is very important to contact HPL as early as possible to avoid delays.

Healthcare Partners Ltd (HPL) is part of the NHS as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Royal Surrey Trust. HPL can help with adding new suppliers and ordering. Purchases are processed through the Trust’s SBS procurement system and will need to be managed by a member of staff within your team/department. Ideally that member of staff should have access to and experience making purchases through SBS. If you have any problems finding someone with the relevant experience or access you should contact your team/department’s Finance Business Partner who can provide further guidance.

It's worth being aware that the Trust’s SBS System is only suited to suppliers who can provide written quotes and invoices. Unfortunately, the charity is currently unable to provide credit card or BACs payment options for charity purchases.
