HCSA – Optimising your supply chain with the support of this suite of information packs and tools.  

In 2017 the HCSA hosted a session where a small number of NHS Trusts worked with a couple of members of the ABHI to look at how working in partnership can drive value and optimise the Supply Chain.

The group identified – ‘ To understand the value you have to understand the cost.’  This highlighted a number of key areas that required more focus.  This initially led to the production of the Consignment Management information pack and tools.

Following feedback at the HCSA 2019 Winter Conference the further suite of information packs and tools were prioritised for release throughout 2020.


The Information packs and tools are made available for all members to use to drive value and optimise the supply chain.
