The HCSA welcomed the decision by NHS Improvement to invest in the appointment of 4 Regional Heads of Procurement.
These senior roles will support Trusts; improve accountability and further embed a performance management culture at Trust procurement level.
HCSA Communications Lead Simon Walsh commented that:
‘The HCSA has for many years campaigned for a better structure within which NHS procurement is delivered-these new roles offer opportunity both for individuals and the NHS. We fully support their appointment and welcome this further step towards recognising the contribution procurement makes to patient care’
