North West SMEs join forces to maximise NHS Procurement potential

Thursday 27 November 2014

Businesses and commercial organisations from the North West gathered in Blackpool last month to meet with NHS Procurement experts. The topic of conversation for the Procurement of Innovation event, held by the North West Coast Academic Health Science Network (NWC AHSN) and sponsored by NHS Supply Chain, was around the potential opportunities for collaborative working with SMEs within the healthcare sector.

With over 150 delegates in attendance, the event was structured around industry-led panels discussing various innovation topics, including the potential opportunities for growth in the NHS and the role small organisations can play.

David Pierpoint, Managing Director, Customer Engagement of the NHS Supply Chain, commented: “NWC AHSN taking a leading role in creating this forum, to bring together procurement and suppliers particularly SME’s, will hopefully act as a platform to help accelerate adoption of innovation within the North West Region and ultimately the wider NHS.”

For the second year in a row NWC AHSN was also the key sponsor for this year’s North West Procurement Development (NWPD) Excellence in Supply Awards.
