procurement matters: a focus on social value and the role procurement can play in the ‘For a greener NHS’ programme

Wednesday 9 December

11am - 12:30pm

Register for Procurement Matters – our monthly call for NHS trust / foundation trust procurement leads to discuss the key procurement issues of the day and how they can impact on you and your teams. An open forum with opportunity for sharing and learning from colleagues across the NHS.

Our December 2020 Procurement Matters will focus on:

  • The Government’s new Social Value model: discussion on the Government’s new social value model (applicable form January 2021), the benefits and challenges it brings and the likelihood of sub-central contracting authorities adopting it.
  • ‘For a greener NHS’ – a discussion on the practical role procurement can play in helping the NHS meet the targets set in the October 2020 report ‘Delivering a Net Zero NHS’. We will also look at the key NHS programmes and initiatives of the day where this is likely to be relevant including new hospital builds and developments under HIP 2. We will bring insights from current procurements we are advising on where environmental factors are already under consideration. We will be joined by Victoria Thourgood, Partner, who advises the NHS on property and development matters and Hannah Payne an Associate in our public law, planning and environmental team who has a particular focus on these issues.

As always we will dedicate the final ten minutes of the session to our “Ask the lawyers” slot – a chance to ask us those niggling practical questions you have.

Please do share this invitation with colleagues from procurement or other teams who you think may be interested in the content of this session.

Format and event details:

Join us monthly for a 90-minute discussion of two key topics. The session is free and no commitment is required.

The session will be hosted on MS Teams and you will received joining instructions in advance of the session.

We looking forward to welcoming you to the next Procurement Matters.
