Dorset County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust targets non-pay saving programme through spend analysis and procurement opportunity assessment.

Client:

The Trust provides a full range of district general services, including an accident and emergency department and five community hospitals, to a population of around 250,000.

“Procura worked with my team in developing spend analysis on non-pay expenditure, identifying targets for savings, and producing a prioritised work plan for savings delivery”
 Louise Brereton, Head of Procurement & Logistics

Dorset County Hospital has approximately 400 beds, seven main theatres and two day theatres. www.dchft.nhs.uk

Approach:

The scope covered all non-pay expenditure at the Trust including clinical, non-clinical, estates and IT.

The approach considers both a qualitative and quantitative assessment;

  • All Trust transaction data extracted, cleansed and categorised using NHS eClass
  • Interviews with procurement team and stakeholders to assess the context of expenditure and the savings opportunity

 

Results:

The Procurement Opportunity Assessment provided the Trust with a number of key deliverables to meet their objectives of delivering cost savings and efficiencies whilst meeting Department of Health and Carter challenges on procurement:

  1. Spend analytics providing complete transparency of non-pay spend  in terms of spend, categories, suppliers and purchasing responsibilities
  2. Savings opportunities identified and prioritised
  3. A sourcing strategy for each savings initiative
  4. Prioritised sourcing work plan to deliver the savings
  5. Assessment of procurement function capability against NHS Standards of Procurement
  6. Recommendations into Procurement Transformation Plan to meet Carter Report challenges
