HFMA Summer Conference
Integrate and innovate
Set across three days, the HFMA summer conference offered something for the entire finance function. This hybrid conference brought together all of the HFMA Hub networks including providers, commissioners, mental health and community organisations as well as those working at a system level.
NHS Supply Chain online session, 13 July 2022 at 2.45pm
“Delivering value and innovation through collaborative system working: making it easier for the NHS to put patients first”
Mike Doyle, Deputy Director – Lancashire Procurement Cluster, Clare Moss, Head of Medicines Optimisation – NHS Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit, and Shona Macdonald, National Lead for Non Acute – NHS Supply Chain showcased a current example of how working in collaboration with procurement, finance and clinical teams has enabled an innovative “off script” wound dressings solution to be identified and piloted across the Lancashire and South Cumbria Health and Care Partnership ICS.
Identifying the opportunity to transform the supply chain pathway for wound care, and responding to the need for improved efficiency, the project team have jointly developed a solution which enables both standardisation of care and simplification of the overall process.
The pilot also aims to improve data capture for this pathway to further increase long term value across the system, ultimately supporting the provision of improved patient care.
Colin McCready, Chief Financial Officer and Hamish Makanji, Head of Customer Relationship Management also shared more detail on the key areas of focus for NHS Supply Chain in 2022 / 2023.
NHS Supply Chain also attended the conference and welcomed colleagues to our exhibition stand during the conference.
