The global language of business

We believe in the power of standards to transform the way we work and live

GS1 UK is a community of more than 50,000 members working in retail, foodservice, healthcare and more. We are one of 115 independent, not-for-profit GS1 organisations operating across 150 countries worldwide.

We work with healthcare providers and suppliers to improve patient safety, enhance clinical effectiveness and drive operational efficiencies

The NHS needs transformational change. Both the interim and final Carter Review reinforced this and called for the NHS to undergo a cultural shift to bring about major efficiencies, or risk further losses.
