Overview

Officially supported by NHS National Services Scotland National Procurement (NHS NSS NP), P4H Scotland 2020 will provide a unique opportunity for Scotland’s NHS buying community and industry to engage in order to enhance knowledge and understanding of the current and planned procurement developments, initiatives and legislative changes taking place within this evolving marketplace.

The day will focus on the objectives outlined in NHS Scotland’s National Strategy 2019-2024 which positively supports the Scottish Government National Performance Framework. The recently published annual report on public procurement in Scotland highlights progress made against the ongoing commitment to deliver high quality public sector services and outlines several new priorities – to ensure that public procurement delivers outcomes that are good for health, good for society, good for the community and good for business.

P4H Scotland 2020 is designed specifically with these priorities in mind, to help both buyer and supplier communities to meet these challenges of today and the future.

For industry, P4H Scotland will provide an unrivalled opportunity to showcase innovative goods and services directly to Scotland’s NHS procurement marketplace. In addition, the event will also host a range of networking and collaboration opportunities, designed to enable attendees to engage directly with key personnel and organisations, representing Scotland’s NHS procurement marketplace, whose estimated annual value is over £2.5bn.
