Following a robust and extensive tender process, the Trust has partnered with HealthTrust Europe (HTE) to support its extensive procurement and contracting needs.
HTE will operate as an extension of the Trust's existing procurement team, providing additional resource, expertise and capacity, aligned to strategic goals, and will deliver value for money and efficiencies. It is anticipated that the partnership will deliver material net benefits to the Trust, both financially and in terms of enabling us to deliver a highly efficient and effective range of procurement services to the Trust and beyond.
Jonathan Dunk Chief Commercial Officer at Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust said:
“I am delighted to be entering into this partnership with HTE, which will enhance our expertise and procurement function, delivering value for our patients through evidence-based health and care solutions that will ultimately benefit the Trust and our population.”
Dale Robinson, HealthTrust Europe’s COO, said:
“HealthTrust Europe’s partnership with Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust is a significant milestone for us. As a company, we are committed to supporting the joining up of health and care as part of the ICS agenda, and this partnership allows us to bring our knowledge and experience in procurement services to mid and south Essex to improve health and care for the patients across the area. We are excited to begin working with the team at the Trust to deliver better outcomes for patients.”
