The Procurement Department is responsible for ensuring that non-pay expenditure is spent wisely, achieves best value, contributes to improved patient care, and is spent in accordance with public sector rules and regulations. Alongside this, they provide a full goods top-up service to wards and departments, manage PPE stocks, maintain the NCA’s eProcurement system and offer related training and support to staff.
The Procurement Department is split across three teams:
- Strategic Sourcing
- Purchase to Pay
The department has an annual savings target of £4.2 million against a non-pay expenditure of £665 million. They were one of the first NHS Procurement Departments in the country to achieve the Level 2 NHS Procurement Standards, as set by the Department of Health, and in 2021 won Team of the Year at the highly prestigious Health Care Supply Association (HCSA) Awards.
