  • Changes – Q‟s• Processes fit for purpose from a users stance? RTC…• More freedom of product choice rather than less?• Regionalise supplier markets through MCNs - ie. endoscopy?• Do controls on waste and variation = negative impact on care?• Do controls on waste and variation really save money?• Can we incentivise clinical staff to change?• Horizon scanning - do our systems stifle new technology?• Clinical Procurement Specialists embedded?• Can we influence how suppliers influence clinicians?• Ageing population - are we forecasting demand impacts?• Too much bureaucracy? Will less bring clinical improvement ?

  • Technical User Groups (TUGS)Back Ground:• New West of Scotland Project.• 5 HB‟s working collectively.• Need to make effective decisions not just advise.• Geographically spread.• Different Organisations• No existing regional decision making forums.• Need to harness the expert knowledge of local product users
  • Technical User Groups (TUGS)Creation of TUGS:• Populated by expert users from each Health Board.• Experts formally appointed to TUG.• Each have DELEGATED AUTORITY OF CEO.• Decisions made once covering all 5 HB‟s.• Expert Users of the services to take primary responsibility for the selection of the supplier of the products/services• Product decisions catalogued and loaded onto local PECOS /Cedar system.• TUG experts maintain „formulary control‟ and review.
  • Procurement Team Supplier TUG Agree a Deal + Product Range.Feedback Add to PECOS Catalogue User Paper Indent Online eProcurement System Goods Issued Supplier Paid
  • TUG : Continence Products• West of Scotland Health Boards spend around £7m per year• Supplied to Primary & Secondary care environments.• TUG of senior Continence Advisors, Service Managers and Procurement Specialists.• National multi –supplier framework let Dec 11.• Mini Competition specification focused on service delivery and costOutcome• Technical Users across the region worked closely together to establish the benefits of a regional approach.• This collective approach delivered improved patient services while delivering enhanced savings through economies of scale and standardisation.• The WoS regional approach to the implementation of this National Framework has also delivered saving of around £1.5M to the five Health Boards.

  • NHSScotlandProcurementSupporting the Health and Wellbeing of the People of Scotland Success so far…. • 16 IIAs delivered since January 2010 • 2 recent events targeted purely on identifying additional savings – £2.2M identified on top of existing projects – Equates to approx 1%-1.5% of targeted Trade Spend • Funding being sought to take this approach to remaining 20 Health Board organisations – Using a conservative 1% estimate this would equate to £20M in additional savings • Beyond investment, it just needs engagement and a common purpose to realise the benefits!
