HCSA Conference 29-30th November 2017

15th August 2017

 1st HCSA One-Day Future Leaders' Conference 30th November, Harrogate International Centre, HG1 5LA

NHS procurement has been the focus of much attention at a national level during 2016/17. In February 2016, we received the eagerly awaited final report from Lord Carter of Coles – Operational productivity and performance in English NHS Hospitals. Lord Carter’s recommendations encouraged greater collaboration between Trusts and its partners at the highest and widest levels.

There is some excellent work being delivered in the NHS, much of it through collaboration between NHS organisations, but also with its suppliers so this year’s HCSA Conference, Stronger Together, provides a great opportunity to share the good work that is going on. The conference will include the 1st HCSA One-Day Future Leaders' Conference being held on Thursday 30th November.

NHS Collaborative Procurement Partnership (NHS CPP) is proud to be sponsoring the Future Leaders' Conference, supporting the future of NHS procurement.

The event will incorporate dedicated sessions to provide delegates with an understanding of the current NHS Procurement Landscape and to provide them with advice and guidance around the tools required to provide a good procurement service for our patients. Workshops include – The Art of Negotiation; The Importance of a Robust Specification; An update on the Public Contract Regulations; An Update on the Future Operating Model; Big Data and the Systems that Support Us and more…

Helen Lisle is leading the event and said she is "delighted that CPP is able to support and participate during the day. It is so very important that we consider the future of procurement and ensure that we have the correctly skilled and motivated staff within NHS Procurement”.
