NHS may collectively be one of the largest purchasers of this sort of kit in the world ... but each hopsital/authority/etc buys most things indenpendently. Think recently Department of Health got someone to investigate the effects of this and found different hospitals paying wildly different prices for the same things - the main area of commonality was the purchasing managers at most hospitals were reluctant to reveal prices they paid because "the salesman told us we were getting a special deal which we couldn't tell anyone else as they couldn't give everyone the same deal" ... and, of course, these "special deals" were in general anything but special.
