20 October 2022 – Westminster Health Forum policy conference: Next steps for procurement in the NHS

Past Event

20th October 2022, 09.00-13.00

This conference will discuss the future outlook for procurement in the NHS.

It takes place with:

  • the Procurement Bill in Parliament, with provisions for awarding and managing government contracts, and ambitions to deliver more efficiency and value for money following Brexit
  • the placing of integrated care systems on a statutory footing, and changes to the procurement of healthcare services to support collaboration and integration in local health systems
  • changes introduced by the NHS to the criteria for commissioning goods and services, in line with the Government’s Social Value Model

The conference will also be a timely opportunity to discuss the direction of Government policy under the new Prime Minister and its possible impact on procurement.

Dr. Peter Bloomfield will be a speaker on the day discussing the opportunities for use of digital methods and automation in the supply chain.
