Key Benefits

  • Future proofing purchases – the service aims to future proof the replacement and financing of medical equipment offered by the CTSP.
  • Collaborative replacement plan development – we go beyond simplistic analysis of asset age. We structure the replacement plan with you and your clinical teams, through an assessment of your equipment technology, clinical performance and maintainability.
  • Business case approval support – provision of detailed analysis and support to navigate your trust’s business case approval processes. Our objective is to establish a clinically assured plan that is fully costed and signed off for funding by key stakeholders.
  • Dedicated MPP Project Manager – once your plan is approved, you will be assigned a dedicated MPP Project Manager who will bring together all the activities required to procure and deliver the programme.
  • Compliant procurement processes with cost-effective outcomes – through this support, we will ensure that your procurement processes are compliant and simple, leveraging a variety of procurement mechanisms to maximise budgets and deliver savings.
  • Reviews – we will carry out periodic reviews of your replacement plan to ensure it is fit for purpose and adapts to your changing needs.
