Procurement Services

Our Head of Procurement, Senior Procurement Manager and Supply Operations Manager form the Leadership Team and are responsible for the creation and delivery of the Procurement Strategy, Work Plans, Policies and Procedures as well as the daily management and support to the team and the Trust.  The Leadership Team is also responsible for the delivery of the local, regional and national programmes as well as eradicating non-compliant procurement processes within the Trust.

The operational elements of our service are divided into two key functions, Procurement and Purchasing. 

Our Procurement Team focus on the delivery of tender exercises focusing on high value and or high risk programmes, we also support the ongoing contract management and efficient initiatives.  The Procurement Team also undertake all matters relating to dispute resolution, contract negotiations and  delivery of the Procurement Strategy. 

Our Purchasing Team support and manage the entire Purchase to Pay (P2P) process for the Trust, this includes the ordering of goods and services, managing requisitions, approvals, creating purchase orders and the receipting of goods.  The Purchasing Team also troubleshoots supply chain matters to ensure we remain a highly effective and resilient Trust.

As a service, our aim is to raise the standards of purchasing and supply chain activity throughout the Trust and foster collaboration with other NHS Trusts and Public Sector bodies to maximise our opportunities and performance.
