Delivering Best Practice Zone

Sessions in the Delivering Best Practice Zone at P4H England will delve further into how the NHS intends to simplify and speed up procurement processes, removing unnecessary bureaucracy and embedding consistent application of commercial standards and best commercial practice.

This will be done through the development a long-term blueprint for NHS Commercial, to promote and drive continuous investment in key strategic enablers and capability accelerators – people, processes and systems – to deliver a sustainable, modern and efficient NHS procurement and supply chain operating model.

 The zone will explore the role of Integrated Care Systems (ICS), the importance of collaborative procurement processes, the impact of the Procurement Act and The Provider Selection Regime (PSR), which came into force on 1 January 2024.
