NHE NHS Procurement
The Health and Care Act 2022 introduced new legislative measures, which are expected to bring significant changes to procurement and supply chains within the health sector to drive forward integration and innovation.
This event was an opportunity to explore the impact on buyers and suppliers in UK healthcare, share best practice amongst procurement leaders, help anyone who is responsible for procurement to navigate rapidly changing policy, and keep on top of changes to how they carry out their role in the NHS.
