The Countess of Chester Hospital Commercial Procurement Services is a centre of procurement expertise providing strategic and specialist procurement services and advice to NHS trusts, wider public sector and private sector clients.
Having developed and streamlined our own practices and processes we are in a unique position to be able to use this expertise to help you to improve working practices and generate significant savings and efficiencies.
Our in-depth knowledge of the NHS and the healthcare market coupled with excellent track record of delivering high quality commercial and procurement projects enables us to effectively advise, assist and deliver a range of benefits including service improvements and cash releasing and cost avoidance savings.
Furthermore, we understand first-hand the increasing and conflicting pressures on the NHS, so we can ensure that the cost improvement initiatives that are implemented are suitable for your Trust’s needs.
We will advise you on the promotion of safety, risk reduction and standardisation of products and practices in line with current clinical guidelines.
We have a multi-disciplinary team of qualified procurement professionals with the skills and knowledge to meet the challenges of the current economic climate in the NHS. We will work with your procurement team to analyse and streamline your current working practices; diagnose the cost improvement opportunities across clinical and non-clinical categories of spend; and manage the risk of challenge during the procurement process.
