Collaborative procurement


Significant cost savings can be achieved through collaborative procurement across south London providers, as we aim to:

  • Standardise what is purchased and
  • Work together to identify opportunities through aligned purchasing power
  • Address tactical intervention (eg price alignment), as well as strategic intervention (eg cost, product, supplier rationalisation)

Three clinical workstreams:

  • Interventional cardiology
  • Cardiac rhythm management

with three crosscutting workstreams:

  • Procurement tender
  • Practice variation
  • Pharmacy

All south London sites are invited to join these projects, with further extension and interest by neighbouring regions.
