Ian Chambers, Linea Group Chief Executive commented, "The HSJ Efficiency Awards recognise just how important efficiency is for the Health Service and champions innovative solutions and cost effective measures, which align to the new strategy for NHS Procurement, and deliver tangible improvements whilst maintaining the highest level of patient care."
The importance of finding further efficiencies in procurement was recently highlighted in the National Press by Dr. Dan Poulter, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Health, who said, "There is still a long way to go to improve value for money in each and every hospital, and to ensure resources are not wasted and that NHS funds are always properly and efficiently spent on where they are needed the most: on frontline care and patients."
Ian Ormrod, Linea Group Director of Continuous Improvement Programmes added, "Linea Group has a long and successful track record supporting the National Health Service in delivering substantial procurement efficiencies. We continue to expand our capability in this area through our network of experienced practitioners and sector experts."
