Campaign aims to involve nurses in NHS procurement

 

New guidance aims to improve the involvement of nursing staff in helping trusts purchase and use key clinical supplies.

NHS Supply Chain, the Clinical Procurement Specialist Network and the Royal College of Nursing, have created the Small Changes, Big Differences campaign.

It aims to make savings and promote patient safety by providing interactive tools and sharing best practice to harness the knowledge and expertise in the NHS.

The campaign includes a toolkit with best practice guidelines providing information about how to get the most out of working with procurement teams, and suggestions on how to take action.

There are also tips to help nurses implement the campaign in their trust, and case studies of trusts that have reduced spend through collaborative purchasing, and prevented waste and saved money by swapping in date clinical supplies with other departments, as well as standardising product ranges to reduce waste and cost.
