NHSCC has been working for some time on influencing the legislative proposals that were put forward by NHS England and NHS Improvement in February this year. One of the issues we have consistently raised with national bodies is the need for changes to the current procurement regime, as we have heard from our members that procurement requirements can in some cases be overly resource-intensive for CCGs, without adding value.
Following on from this, as part of a wider set of legislative proposals that were published in recommendations to government last month, NHS England and NHS Improvement are currently in the process of developing a new procurement regime. They are now looking to develop more detailed proposals in conjunction with stakeholders in advance of a full consultation early next year.
We would therefore like to invite NHSCC members to a webinar that provides more information around the development of the new procurement regime, as well as setting out how you can contribute.
Please register if you would like to attend this webinar.
