DigitalHealth.London is pleased to invite SMEs and start-ups seeking direction on NHS procurement policies to its first masterclass, hosted at Cocoon Networks.
In 2016, the Carter Review identified significant variation in costs and practice in the NHS which, if addressed, it said could save 600 million pounds annually. With the UK Department of Health’s subsequent introduction of the Procurement Transformation Programme (PTP), efficient sourcing of goods for the NHS and procurement transformation is now high on trusts’ agendas.
In this masterclass, Joel Glover, Head of Growth and Market Strategy, and Chris Schonewald, Commercial Policy Adviser, both at the Department of Health, will explain the PTP and draw out advice and guidance for businesses looking to engage with the NHS. The discussion will also cover key points of the innovator’s journey from the perspective of the NHS, as well as giving tips for success.
Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions, and following the session there will be networking and the option to meet experts for tailored advice and questions in a 1:1 setting.
