Strategic Procurement Leadership

The Long Term Plan commits the NHS to a productivity growth target of at least 1.1% a year, with all savings to be retained and reinvested in more and better patient care. The development and implementation of a robust procurement strategy, together with a strong procurement profile within your organisation, is critical to the delivery of this national objective and local targets.
