NHS Supply Chain is running a series of free interactive information events in November for the NHS and associated organisations to learn more about three key developmental projects which will influence NHS procurement in the coming months:
1. Changing VAT status
NHS Supply Chain is moving outside of the VAT family. Learn how the change in VAT status for NHS Supply Chain will impact your trust or organisation, and how you will need to manage this change in your trust.
2. EU Exit
While the Government remains confident we will leave with a good deal for both sides, NHS Supply Chain, in conjunction with the Department of Health & Social Care, is taking measures to help ensure that NHS organisations can continue to access the products they need in the normal way, whatever the outcome of the EU exit negotiations. This update provides information on the measures being taken.
3. Move to Buy Price = Sell Price
Under the new NHS Supply Chain model products will no longer be sold with a margin attached to them. This session will explain how the changes will be implemented and how you can maximise the benefit from the NHS Supply Chain cost price catalogue.
The events will provide crucial information for planning and we encourage all NHS trust Procurement and Finance departments to attend. Separate events are also being run for private healthcare providers and suppliers.
