NHS Lancashire Procurement Cluster

Supply Chain Resilience Programme 2020/21

In response to the Covid pandemic and EU Exit situation the NHS Lancashire Procurement Cluster (LPC) embarked upon a structured supply chain resilience programme of work in March 2020. 

The LPC is the shared collaborative procurement and supply chain service for Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust and Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. 

This programme has been the single most challenging programme of work any of us have undertaken in our careers in the NHS, but the lessons learned and the relationships made have been invaluable in allowing us to improve our service.
