Gordon Beattie has been appointed as the new director of national procurement of National Services Scotland (NSS), overseeing all operations across its strategic sourcing, logistics and supply chain services.
Beattie joins NSS from NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, where he has held various senior procurement roles since January 2001.
Beattie said: “I’m delighted to be joining NSS as the director of national procurement (NP). I’ve worked in partnership with NP for a long time and it’s been great to have been involved in supporting the growth of the organisation.
“In this role, a focus of mine will be to maximise how we collaborate and partner across the health and social care sector, in turn providing benefits to patients, customers and the wider economy.”
Jim Miller , director of procurement, commissioning and facilities, said: “Combining the responsibilities of strategic sourcing and logistics naturally helps align our services to more collaborative opportunities whilst being ever more customer focused – one joined up service.
“I’m looking forward to welcoming Gordon and the ideas he’ll bring to support even greater collaborative working within National Procurement and across NHS Scotland.”
