Our 2022-23 Business Plan continues to showcase our commitment to playing our part in supporting the NHS to deliver safe and excellent patient care.
NHS trusts remain at the centre of everything we do, and the six corporate objectives identified, ensures we continue to deliver the products and services needed by the NHS, both now and in the future.
Our priorities will focus on the following six areas:
Partner with trusts to deliver excellent patient care
Our objective is to partner with trusts by aligning our ways of working to the NHS; strengthening their voice in our organisation; and working with them to ensure we are providing the safe and fit for purpose products they need to deliver excellent patient care.
Improve the way we work with trusts
Our ambition is to develop a seamless approach to how trusts do business with us so they can spend time doing what matters – caring for patients.
Embed category strategy excellence, whilst driving savings
Our objective for 2022 – 2023 is to embed strong category management expertise across our procurement activities, and within our target operating model.
The resilience of our supply chain is critical to ensuring clinicians have the products they need to provide safe and excellent patient care with minimal disruption.
Develop our data strategy, and pilot value use cases
We recognise NHS Supply Chain’s unique position in the NHS offers the potential to provide key national datasets on behalf of our NHS Partners, linking together data from system partners to drive great decision making across the NHS.
Create the future
This Business Plan represents the first stage of our journey to delivering our Vision and Strategy. Our Vision and Strategy guide the transformation of NHS Supply Chain, positioning us to deliver value across the health system and government over the longer term.
