NHS Procurement - 'Raising Our Game'

Monday 28 May 2012

Guidance aimed at improving procurement across the healthcare system has been published by the Department of Health. 'NHS procurement: raising our game' sets out proposed actions for NHS trusts and the Department and focuses on taking immediate action to start tackling key areas for improvements.

This guidance is launched in advance of a procurement strategy planned for later in 2012, that will be developed following a wider call for evidence. It aims to start the journey to world class procurement by identifying those issues and actions that require immediate attention in order to lay the foundations for a fuller and further-reaching strategy later in the year. In support, the Department have also published NHS Standards of Procurement, which will support trusts in understanding what good procurement looks like and in planning their improvements at a local level.
