Department of Health has arranged two training sessions to make NHS procurers aware of departmental activity in a number of key areas.
The training sessions will help you to ensure you are aware of the work that has already been undertaken along with future plans and to use the information both effectively and in compliance with Department of Health policy.
Update to the NHS Terms and Conditions – Presenters: Sean Earnshaw and colleague (Mills and Reeve)
The NHS Terms and Conditions were updated and will be published on GOV.UK in January this year. This session will summarise the changes made to the full suite of NHS Terms and Conditions so that they are in compliance with policy and legislation.
There will be a separate training session covering IT Terms and Conditions.
To get the most out of the session, you will need to be familiar with the Terms & Conditions which can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/nhs-standard-terms-and-conditions-of-contract-for-the-purchase-of-goods-and-supply-of-services.
Please print a copy and bring it with you.

FOM – Presenters: TBC
The Future Operating Model of NHS Supply Chain (FOM) is launching in April 2018. We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the future of NHS Procurement. This session will give you a chance to hear about our plans and ask questions.
