Fuel card provider FuelGenie has been accredited as the official fuel card supplier to the NHS in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, as well as to other public sector organisations in the UK.
It is the only dedicated supermarket fuel provider listed on the NHS Shared Business Services Framework.
Dave Taylor, category manager at NHS Shared Business Services, said: “Following a rigorous process of bidding, vetting and verification, we’re happy to announce that FuelGenie is now an officially recognised supplier within the NHS Shared Business Services Framework.
“Suppliers are only approved once they have demonstrated meeting our strict standards with regards to value for money and quality of service.”
FuelGenie says its users can save more than 3 pence per litre of fuel, by providing access to low-cost petrol and diesel at more than 1,370 supermarket forecourts.
Robert Pieczka, managing director of FuelGenie, added: “We are very proud to have received this accreditation from NHS Shared Business Services. We now look forward to helping this important organisation deliver its services to citizens all over the country, as well as working with other public sector organisations across the UK.”
FuelGenie works by providing a fuel payment card for each driver, linked to an online account management system from which administrators can easily supervise usage, set spending limits and manage driver accounts.
NHS Shared Business Services is the second public organisation to name FuelGenie as an approved supplier. The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) accredited the company in a similar move last year.
