Power Control Ltd has been providing emergency power solutions to healthcare facilities for almost three decades as is keen to remind NHS businesses that it is part of the NHS Shared Business Services (SBS) hard facilities framework agreement. Being part of this agreement helps to speed up the procurement process whilst also giving peace of mind to the end user.

To become an approved supplier, Power Control underwent a rigorous set of quality and commercial assessments to ensure its product and services are fit for purpose for the NHS. As well as holding an independent position on the NHS SBS framework, Power Control also works closely with several consultants and contractors that are also on the framework.

The NHS SBS framework agreements cover a wide range of products and services including medical equipment, commodities such as medicines, IT and facility services.

Founded by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), the NHS SBS was set up to ‘improve efficiency and quality, save time and money and support world-class patient care’. It is one of the largest, global shared service providers and has extensive experience across the healthcare sphere.

With its headquarters in Sheffield, Power Control operates all over the country and has been delivering life safety systems and clinical power solutions for over 20 years. The company has vast experience across the entire healthcare market and understands the very stringent regulations and operating recommendations that are required from UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply), IPS (Isolated Power Supply), batteries and switchgear. Our range of equipment comply with HTM 06-01 (Health and Safety Memorandum), British Standards BS7671, BS6290-4 and IEC60601 (International Electrotechnical Commission).
