The current NHS Supply Chain contract is coming to an end in September 2018, and to replace it we are establishing a new model that will aggregate spend across the NHS and realise benefits through using our scale to get the best prices, reducing product variation and removing profit margins from the prices paid by Trusts.
Products will be clinically evaluated and assured so that clinicians, staff and patients can be confident that the right products are being used at the right price.
Given the vital role played by NHS staff in realising the vision and benefits of the new NHS Supply Chain, we recognised an opportunity to collaborate with Fab to share our work and initiatives and get insights and views from you.
Starting in March, we will be sharing content and news, but in the meantime we want to share some great opportunities for roles in a new organisation that will manage the model.
We are currently recruiting for an HR Director: https://www.jobs.nhs.uk/xi/vacancy/188615dfcab67a0f6cebca6f2a5dd93c/?vac_ref=914957945
and a Director of Clinical and Product Assurance: https://www.jobs.nhs.uk/xi/vacancy/34bb1817351c90612c11c645d4ab2b0f/?vac_ref=914958103
alongside a number of other roles on our recruitment microsite http://procurementtransformation.org.uk/.
We’d welcome applicants from this community and look forward to sharing more about the programme from March.
