In honour of the NHS in its 70th year we are celebrating our wonderful staff.
Alan Hoskins, Director of Procurement and Commercial Services, tells us what he enjoys most about his role “The diversity and sheer number of things Procurement get involved in opens up my mind to the great work that the NHS does every minute of every day for almost 70 years!”
Alan’s role is to ensure his team delivers the very best services to every patient and member of staff. This means that patients, wards and departments across the hospital receive the right products or services, and providing safe and efficient contracts that offer great value for money.
When asked why he chose to work within the NHS, which he has done since 1985 Alan said: “Even though we don’t have direct patient contact, we have a part to play in every patient’s journey in Portsmouth and it’s beyond rewarding.”
“My favourite memory from working in the NHS is developing and building a great team and making many life-long friends.” Alan states, “If you want a rewarding, challenging role that means you become part of a great team and you are ready to work hard and do a great days work, the NHS is for you. It will continue to provide you with a real sense of achievement as well as knowing the benefit it brings to many who arrive at our door for help, reassurance and great care.”
Thank you Alan! #NHS70
