Helping your trust save, find out how

We are expanding the Trusted Customer Programme for more information on how to register your interest please contact Andy Harris, NHS Business Services Authority Procurement Delivery Manager, Supplier Management, on: 07827357869 or andy.harris4@nhs.net

The category strategies are an integral part of reaching the £300m cash releasing savings target. NHS Supply Chain will be working closely with NHS colleagues to help us achieve this plan.

24 product categories have been identified which can potentially deliver significant NHS cash releasing savings. Strategies are being developed for each of these categories, with a focus on increasing price transparency, aggregating and standardising products to drive cost savings for the whole of the NHS.

To encourage change across the NHS requires a collaborative approach and the Trusted Customer Programme will be the voice of the NHS to help drive the delivery of savings via the NHS Supply Chain Model.

Thank you to all of our Trusted Customers for taking such an active role in this project and for their support in developing these key strategies.
