Using regional category strategies, we use a variety of procurement methods to deliver maximum benefit including further competitions at trust level or a cohort programme, where groups of trusts are in a position to aggregate spend requirements.

We provide category insights and knowledge to develop strategies to identify value opportunities at all stages of the end to end Procurement cycle. Through our pipeline approach, we work with customers to develop and prioritise opportunities to deliver both financial and non-financial benefits. Our robust sourcing methodology is tailored to the key stages needed in successfully delivering collaborative projects. Our templates are continuously improved to support customers in developing the optimum sourcing approach.

We have developed various methodologies for effective stakeholder engagement in the procurement process including processes to reach collaborative consensus.
