The National NHS Trust Procurement Directory, launched in January 2001, is designed to enable senior-level staffing within individual Trusts to communicate with their counterparts in other NHS organisations and source the best available products and services
The directory is distributed to over 12,500 directors and senior management, twice a year, totally free of charge, the directory contains details of management staff within HR, Facilities and Procurement within, Health Authorities & Organisations, Hospital Trusts, Mental Health Trusts, Ambulance Service Trusts and GP Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG’s).
We have been using the National NHS Procurement Directory for a number of years as a networking tool when carrying out collaborative procurement exercises.The directory is user friendly and allows us to easily access our colleagues across the country, often to great benefit, both in terms of the contacts made, the information sharing that occurs and the mutual benefits that are derived. This publication definitely has a place in all NHS departments!
This directory allows NHS organisations to work in wider groups than their STP's, finding new strategic partners, and using a greater buying power to reduce costs. A fantastic free resource.
We use soft skills “Conversational Integrity”, to measure and close the gap between employee behaviours and your organisational values, using our “Mind the Gap” survey tool, which promotes workplaces where employees feel they can innovate and challenge the status quo without the fear of reprisal, creating “Clear Air”.
