Working with suppliers

We work with a number of suppliers to help ensure that we provide the best possible service to the public. Each year we spend approximately £78 million on a wide range of goods and services. We have a responsibility to ensure that all public money we receive is used as resourcefully as possible, and that we achieve the best value for money.


London Ambulance Service NHS Trust is committed to delivering good governance and always expects its directors and staff and volunteers to meet the highest standards of business conduct.

The Bribery Act 2010 came into force on 1 July 2011. The aim of the act is to tackle bribery and corruption in both the private and public sector.

One of the six principles of the Act demands that there is top level commitment in the organisation for preventing bribery. London Ambulance Service NHS Trust is committed to ensuring compliance with the Act and has a zero tolerance approach to fraud, corruption and bribery.

The Trust follows the Ministry of Justice guidance and NHS Counter Fraud Authority guidance to prevent and detect fraud, corruption and bribery and to have robust controls, policies and procedures in place to prevent fraud, corruption and bribery. The Trust’s Local Counter Fraud Specialist can be contacted if members of staff and volunteers have any concerns of fraud corruption or bribery.

On behalf of London Ambulance Service NHS Trust I would like to re-affirm our commitment to ensuring that the Trust is free from fraud, corruption and bribery and that all members of staff and volunteers are aware of their responsibilities in relation to the prevention of bribery.
