The awards are highly sought after within the procurement and supply chain community and reflect the work of the team in providing an innovative and effective NHS service.
The Department, which is responsible for managing all supplies to the hospital, from high volume gloves and bandages, to high cost implants has achieved the award in the Most Improved Procurement Operation – Step Change category. This recognises the work of the department in pioneering the use of GS1 and PEPPOL standards, which has already delivered hundreds of thousands of pounds of efficiency savings and improved patient safety.
“This is an outstanding achievement for Salisbury District Hospital and reflects the excellent work the team are doing to ensure we have good quality, safe and effective procurement systems in place. I’m proud of the team’s transformation. We are not only delivering significant savings, but are now seen as a driving force for innovative change in Salisbury, with practices used in other parts of the country.”
Rob Webb, Director of Procurement and Commercial Services
