Overview

Recent Government announcements have highlighted a commitment to increase healthcare funding. Future non-pay spend is estimated to be around £34 billion, meaning that procurement has a crucial role to play in delivering the NHS’s efficiency objectives.

The Procurement Transformation Programme (PTP) is now well underway , and the ongoing implementation of the NHS Supply Chain Future Operating Model will represent a significant opportunity to maximise the vast buying power of the NHS through national demand aggregation, a key enabler for securing value for money for both the NHS and taxpayers.

P4H England 2020 is the must-attend one-day event for the UK’s healthcare procurement community, designed to give both buyers and suppliers the opportunity to network and engage across a range of interactive features, including:

• Keynote Arena
• Skills Development Zones
• NHS Supply Chain Procurement Pavilion
New for 2020 – Digital & Innovation Skills Zone and Pavilion
New for 2020 – Estates & Infrastructure Skills Zone and Pavilion
• Product Showcase Exhibition
