Partners in procurement
With increasing emphasis on smarter purchasing throughout the NHS, our Integrated Procurement Partners (IPP) teams understand the national agenda NHS Trusts must operate within - Lord Carter's recommendations, STPs, NHS Standards of Procurement, the Future Operating Model and so on.
However, they also understand that every trust is unique, and that each face different challenges around procurement which require different approaches.
To address this, we provide a range of procurement services to including content management, strategic procurement support & delivery, transactional procurement services and materials management. Our services are based on a flexible model where Trusts can choose to take whichever elements of the service that best suit their requirements supporting a bespoke, tailored approach. If you prefer, we also offer the option of a full strategic procurement service delivered by an experienced onsite team based at the Trust - a service we have provided to various clients for several years now.
