Value adding suppliers and supplier relationships are a key contributor to the success of Netcare. Consequently Netcare have the highest standards for adopting new suppliers. Prior to being approved as a Netcare supplier, all potential suppliers are required to complete an Accreditation Questionnaire. If successful, such suppliers will then be guided through the remaining adoption steps towards being an Approved Supplier.
There are many benefits associated with being an Approved Netcare Supplier, including access to the numerous Netcare subsidiaries and other networks. Suppliers who have good performance track records are well supported within the Netcare Group.

As Netcare moves toward building stronger relations with suppliers, both parties should be able to rely on the best standards when dealing with one another and accordingly a Supplier Code of Conduct is signed by both parties to demonstrate commitment. Netcare may at its discretion elect to invite new suppliers to participate in the adoption process.
