Steve thanked the HCSA for the opportunity and said “I have enjoyed immensely being part of the HCSA stakeholder group and contributing to the wider agenda and conferences over the last 4 years and I wish the HCSA and colleagues all the best for the future and believe that HCSA will become even more critical as NHS Procurement continues through its transformation over the next two years.
East Midlands Regional Coordinator
