NWCPH - North West Collaborative Procurement Hub
The North West Collaborative Procurement Hub is part of a national initiative from the Department of Health to create collaborative procurement in the NHS. In simple terms, strategic buying for NHS Trusts should result in big savings £35m (net) pounds over the next three years is the forecast. The North West Hub (originally Greater Manchester Hub) is also a Pathfinder project, and will act as a pilot scheme to see if the DoH's collaborative procurement theories will work.
