The Procurement and Supply Chain Team supports Dartford & Gravesham NHS Trust in delivering high quality care to our patients.
A high-performing procurement and supply chain function is vital to the success of running a safe, productive and efficient healthcare organisation, and can make a significant contribution to both financial and operational performance.
We work closely with our clinical and operational colleagues to maximise the value from our supply chain by applying effective strategic sourcing and commercial expertise to all expenditure.
The team is committed to working constructively and collaboratively with our suppliers in developing value adding opportunities and harnessing the potential for our supply chain to support the Trust in delivering better care to our patients and in improving operational performance and efficiency.
Whilst cost reduction activity remains important, our focus is for the Trust to become the 'partner of choice' for key suppliers across the healthcare sector - a key strategic partner for product/service development, research, innovation and working collaboratively to improve healthcare for patients.
