NHS SBS is the country’s leading supplier of corporate services to the NHS and manages over 40 framework agreements covering a wide range of clinical and corporate goods and services.

Through the framework agreement, Drees & Sommer UK will support the NHS and other public sector clients with a variety of services after securing four of the Lots applied for. This includes:

Lot 1 – Business, Leadership, Management, Governance, Structure & Strategy
Lot 5 – IT Business Consultancy
Lot 9 – Social Value, Sustainability, and Carbon Neutrality
Lot 10 – Property


The new agreement is a testament to Drees & Sommer UK’s substantial experience within the health sector, having operated multiple major consultancy assignments across the UK, including Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust Estates, West Hertfordshire Hospitals NHS Trust, North London Mental Health Partnership, Birmingham & Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, Lancashire Teaching NHS Trust, University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust, Community Health Partnerships, NHS Property Services, and more.

After completing the merger of Drees & Sommer’s established UK business and leading UK consultant AA Projects, the team has strengthened its capabilities in several areas, including IT Business Consultancy, which has played a pivotal role in being appointed to the NHS SBS framework.

Mark Simpson, Director at Drees & Sommer UK, said: “This appointment represents a fantastic opportunity for our team to help deliver our speciality consultancy and advisory expertise to support a broad range of services across the UK health economy. We look forward to establishing a long and prosperous relationship with the NHS and other clients on the framework.”
