The Shelford Group is working in collaboration to develop and enhance its Procurement and Supply Chain capability and also leverage the scale and the status of its members to deliver market changing and significant benefits. A Shelford Group Procurement Strategy has been developed and underpins a ground-breaking programme of work focused on collaborative sourcing, enhancing Procurement and Supply chain capability and implementing a ‘best of breed’ approach to procurement technology.
This innovative programme aims to ensure that the 10 trusts leverage their combined buying power to identify those suppliers who can provide high quality, leading medical technology to enable superior clinical outcomes, whilst ensuring best value for money. Led by the Procurement Directors, and supported by key delivery partners, the programme works closely with leading clinicians from within the trusts to ensure Shelford Group effectively procure the right products and services at a competitive price while supporting innovation and efficiency, and that these benefits can be shared with other hospitals and the wider NHS.
