HealthTrust Europe shortlisted as a finalist for the HSJ Partnership Awards 2023

HealthTrust Europe is delighted to announce that ‘The Upscaling of Digital Pathology Capabilities’ partnership with PathLAKE Plus and University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust has been shortlisted for ‘Procurement Project of the Year’ at the HSJ Partnership Awards 2023, recognising their outstanding dedication to improving healthcare and effective collaboration with the NHS.

The national healthcare sector has faced many pressures recently, yet the dedication of this partnership in overcoming complex challenges highlights the enduring dedication to improving patient outcomes.

The outcome of the project partnership is to deliver digital pathology, AI capabilities and laboratory interoperability as part of the OLS Digital Pathology and imaging AI Scale Up Programme across a consortium of 19 NHS Trusts, and to share best practice across the NHS on the upscaling of digital pathology capabilities, leading to improved patient outcomes in pathways such as reducing cancer diagnostic waiting times. The existing procurement route was fragmented and challenging. HealthTrust Europe created an innovative compliant framework employing various creative approaches to a complex and clinically lead procurement process.

Being shortlisted for a HSJ Partnership Award has given our partnership teams acknowledgement for the outstanding work that has, and continues to deliver lifesaving patient outcomes that is nationally reproducible and the team’s efforts and continued work is recognised.

The HSJ Partnership Awards recognise and honour the most effective partnerships, innovative projects and collaborations in the UK health system. The prestigious award programme, now in its sixth year, is not just a celebration of success stories but also a platform to shape the future of our new integrated health and care system.

The judging panel comprised a diverse range of highly regarded figures across the NHS and wider healthcare sector. To be shortlisted as a finalist for these awards, despite tough competition from a pool of brilliant applications, is a mark of real achievement for HealthTrust Europe. The project ‘Upscaling of Digital Pathology Capabilities’ partnership has been selected based on their diligence, ambition, and the positive impact that the project has had on both practitioners and patients within the health care system, and is an example of how HealthTrust Europe creates partnerships across the health and care system.

Dale Robinson, HealthTrust Europe’s COO, said:

“We are delighted to have been shortlisted for the Procurement Project of the Year, recognising the collaborative efforts and dedication of our team to successfully implement ‘The Upscaling of Digital Pathology Capabilities’. We are committed to delivering improved outcomes for patients, and to be chosen among the other incredible nominees is a wonderful achievement.  This nomination has been a tremendous boost to both to our team and our NHS partners at PathLAKE Plus and University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust and I am sure it will bolster our continued efforts to support the NHS delivery of improved care for patients.”

Dr David Clark, Nottingham University Hospital NHS Trust’s Clinical Lead for Digital Pathology Implementation, said:

“None of this would have happened without the support of the PathLAKE Plus project funded by Innovate UK and the procurement run by HealthTrust Europe”

Representative for the Department of Health & Social Care, said:

“DHSC are delighted that HealthTrust Europe are being nominated for the Procurement Project of the Year Award in their efforts to scale-up digital pathology services for the NHS as part of the PathLAKE Plus project, as we recognise that better procurement not only provides essential cost savings for a key public sector organisation but also provides better value for money.

Technology is a force for good in our fight against deadly diseases – it can transform and save lives through faster diagnosis, free up clinicians to spend time with their patients and make every pound in the NHS go further.”

Steve Blunden, Cellular and Anatomical Pathology Operations Manager at University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust, said:

“…It is without doubt that working with PathLAKE Plus and Health Trust Europe has greatly improved our understanding of what is needed in order to procure and implement Digital Pathology across the South West Peninsula. HealthTrust Europe guided us through the procurement process…. using lessons they had learnt supporting other partners…”

HSJ editor Alastair McLellan said:

“We would like to congratulate HealthTrust Europe on being nominated in the category of Procurement Project of the Year ahead of HSJ Partnership Awards 2023. We are looking forward to welcoming them to the ceremony in March, to join us in recognising the very best collaborations and innovations in the healthcare sector. This year’s finalists are of an outstanding calibre and all of them are exceptionally dedicated to enhancing healthcare across the UK.”

The winners will be selected following a rigorous judging stage ahead of the HSJ Partnership Awards 2023 awards ceremony. The awards evening is expected to be attended by national healthcare leaders and professionals from both the NHS and private sector as well as figures from non-clinical backgrounds to celebrate innovation and collaboration in healthcare.

HealthTrust Europe Welcomes Summer 2022 Interns

Students from two local Birmingham universities will be spending their summer at HealthTrust Europe (HTE), gaining valuable work experience to support their entry into the workplace following graduation. The five internships are based at HTE’s headquarters in Edgbaston and are across a range of business disciplines including Financial Analytics, Human Resources and Strategic Sourcing. The students have been allocated roles aligned to their professional interests.

Hannah Barton, HR Director said:

As part of our commitment to developing employees of the future, we are excited to welcome our latest group of interns. We have developed a comprehensive, and appropriately tailored programme to make this a positive and valuable experience.

Our colleagues have a wealth of experience that they are keen to share with our interns. Our supportive and inclusive culture will ensure they feel comfortable to ask questions which will help them to learn and gain experience.”

HTE provides Value Based Procurement Solutions predominantly across the healthcare sector to manage spend effectively and improve performance. The organisation works with both public and private sector organisations to optimise the use of products and services and to identify cost saving opportunities.

HealthTrust Europe Partners with Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust to Support Integrated Care

HealthTrust Europe (HTE) is pleased to announce its formal partnership with Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust (MSENHSFT) following an extensive tender process undertaken throughout 2021. 

The partnership will see HTE brought on board as MSENHSFT’s Commercial Procurement Partner, providing additional expertise as the Trust seeks to establish itself as a leading provider within the Mid and South Essex Integrated Care System (ICS). 

The Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust is a fully established, merged organisation, one of the largest acute providers of healthcare in the NHS, providing services to over 1.2 million residents in Mid and South Essex – this partnership will support the Trust as it further focuses on improving the experiences and health outcomes of patients using healthcare services. 

As part of a global organisation that is both a healthcare provider and procurement solutions partner, HTE is led by the core mission to improve care and human life. HTE works with its partners to deliver value whilst maintaining clinical and procurement standards and technology solutions. HTE brings 11-years of extensive experience working with the NHS to improve patient outcomes and streamline operations to the MSENHSFT partnership.  

HTE’s wide portfolio of market-leading and policy compliant Frameworks will enable MSENHSFT to provide services and solutions to many public sector entities as the ambitions of integrated care are realised. By partnering with HTE, MSENHSFT will be better equipped to deliver new ‘extended’ services, particularly focused on data, technology and systems in a joined-up manner to ensure the continued transition to integrated care.  

The partnership’s foundation will be built upon shared goals, mutual understanding, trust and governance. HTE will operate as an extension of the MSENHSFT team providing additional resource, expertise and capacity that is aligned to strategic goals and will deliver value and efficiencies that further enhance health and care services to the local population in a predictable and sustainable model. Longer term benefits include the transfer of knowledge and skills to create space for innovation and growth of the Trust.

“HealthTrust Europe’s partnership with Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust is a significant milestone for us. As a company, we are committed to supporting the joining up of health and care as part of the ICS agenda, and this partnership allows us to bring our knowledge and experience in procurement services to Mid and South Essex to improve health and care for the patients across the area.

We are excited to begin working with the team at the Trust to deliver better outcomes for patients.”

HealthTrust Europe Celebrates International Nurses Day with a Visit to Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust

HealthTrust Europe’s Chief Operating Officer, Dale Robinson, enjoyed a visit to Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust this week to mark International Nurses Day.

Despite the challenging circumstances nurses often face, nurses go above and beyond to deliver critical care to patients every day. That is why each year on May 12th – the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing – people across the world come together to celebrate International Nurses Day and acknowledge the exceptional work that nurses do.

The theme of this year’s International Nurses Day is ‘Nurses: A Voice to Lead – Invest in Nursing and respect rights to secure global health.’ This year, the International Council for Nurses (ICN) celebrates the day by raising awareness about the rights and struggles of Nurses, aiming to educate people and nurses on how to create a better working environment.

In the lead up to International Nurses Day, Dale Robinson was pleased to be invited to spend the day at Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust on Monday 9th May. He was able to spend time speaking with nurses across various wards to hear their unique stories and experiences of working at the Trust, particularly relating to the challenges they faced due to COVID-19, and those that remain as we emerge from the pandemic.

Earlier this year, HealthTrust Europe announced that Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity – part of the Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust – is the company’s chosen charity to support in 2022. HealthTrust Europe selected this charity because it is the local hospital to the company’s Head Office in Edgbaston, and many of our team members have either spent time at the Hospital themselves or have been impacted in some way by the work that the Trust undertakes.

As the Trust – like many others across the country – continues to grapple with financial difficulties as a result of the pandemic, HealthTrust Europe is proud to be able to support the vital care provided through our fundraising initiative.

Dale Robinson, Chief Operating Officer at HealthTrust Europe, said:

“It was a privilege to spend the day at Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust to mark International Nurses Day, and I thoroughly enjoyed speaking to some of the inspirational nurses who deliver excellent care to patients each and every day.

I, like many of my colleagues at HealthTrust Europe, have been positively impacted by the work of this Trust at various points in my life. Being able to give back to the Trust through our company-wide fundraising initiative in 2022 is something we are very proud of. We hope that this support goes some way in demonstrating just how valued this Trust is to our colleagues.”

 Dearbhla Craddock, Corporate Partnerships Officer at Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, said:

“We’re absolutely delighted to have been chosen as HealthTrust Europe’s charity of the year and can’t wait to see what we’re able to achieve together through this fantastic partnership.

“Through their fundraising and support, HealthTrust Europe will be helping us to improve our hospital environment and patient experience, find breakthrough cures and treatment through research and enable us to purchase the latest state-of-the-art equipment.”

HealthTrust Europe Celebrates Diversity and Inclusion During Mental Health Awareness Week

It is important to understand how all types of diversity can impact a person’s identity, and to acknowledge the relationship between identity, inclusion and mental health. An article by mental health charity Mind[1] outlines the link between promoting diversity and inclusion (D&I) within the workplace and the positive impact this has on overall employee wellbeing and mental health. At HealthTrust Europe, we are proud to be an organisation that champions mental health and D&I through tangible measures to enable our diverse workforce to feel supported and represented.

This Mental Health Awareness Week focuses on the theme of loneliness, exploring the effect of feeling lonely on our wellbeing and identifying how we can all play a part in reducing loneliness in our communities. At HealthTrust Europe, we believe tackling loneliness can start in the workplace. That is why we are committed to meaningfully supporting our colleagues struggling with mental health by providing a wealth of online wellbeing resources and offering all colleagues access to a private GP and private healthcare service.

To further tackle loneliness and isolation within the workforce, HealthTrust Europe has committed to arranging monthly in-person social activities that provide opportunities for colleagues to connect with individuals from across the company, creating a positive and amiable culture. Covering a range of topics that appeal to a variety of interests, last month’s event involved corporate team building exercises and this month’s activity will involve visiting Birmingham’s  botanical gardens. Additionally, HealthTrust Europe endeavours to bring our colleagues together in support of our philanthropic missions. In September, a team from HealthTrust Europe will be competing in a boat race in support of our corporate charity, Birmingham Childrens Hospital.

As part of our commitment to engage meaningfully with our colleagues, we believe that it is paramount to reflect the experiences of all to truly harness an inclusive and representative work environment. We are proud to be a company that recognises the importance of gender representation and equality and, out of our exceptional 116 employees, our team is made up of 54% women and 46% men, with an above average number of women holding management positions. Compared to the national average [2] of 34% of women in management positions in the UK, we are delighted to have 46% of women in our business in management and leadership positions, and to have 50% of our Executive Leadership team made up of females. Our commitment to gender equality at HealthTrust Europe is demonstrated throughout all levels of our organisation, with strong female leaders providing mentorship and coaching to support our colleagues.

In addition to our work on gender equality, we are also proud to be a diverse workforce, representing a range of different cultures, religions and beliefs across our teams, as well as 11 nationalities. Of our 116 colleagues, our team is made up of:

  • 29% Asian/ Asian British
  • 21% Black/ Black British
  • 32% White/ White British
  • 7% Mixed/Multiple Ethnic Groups (White and Black Caribbean)

Ensuring that our colleagues from all backgrounds and identities feel appropriately represented and empowered whilst at work is absolutely critical to everything we do. Unfortunately, owing to a range of factors such as underrepresentation, stigma, discrimination and inaccessibility to mental health services, racial/ethnic, gender and sexual identities are often at higher risk[1] of poor mental health outcomes. Too often those suffering with poor mental health can go on to experience feelings of loneliness if the appropriate support networks are not available.

At HealthTrust Europe, we are pleased to have established multiple CSR groups that cover mental health and wellbeing, including a group for social activities. This group focuses on organising events across all levels of the company for co-workers to get involved in, including cinema visits, sports events, and quizzes. Beyond this, HealthTrust Europe is proud to have: an approachable Executive and HR team; an employee advisory group and an employee assistance programme; and a number of mental health first-aiders who are on hand to support co-workers to tackle stigma, and harness inclusion in the workplace.

To strengthen our commitment to D&I and mental health and to mark Mental Health Awareness Week, we are delighted to announce the appointment of Christine Charles as our new Learning and Development Manager. Christine joins HealthTrust Europe on 4th July 2022. In addition to a wealth of learning and development experience, she holds a particular passion for mental health and wellbeing. We are excited to enhance our D&I and mental health offering for colleagues and continue to make HealthTrust Europe an even more positive and inclusive working environment for all.

Provider Collaboratives: Explaining Their Role in System Working

As a proud Corporate Supporter of The King’s Fund, HealthTrust Europe is pleased to have funded a project the organisation is working on to explain Provider Collaboratives.


Provider collaboratives are set to become a key part of the emerging arrangements in the NHS over the next few years.  The explainer considers the function of provider collaboratives in England, the opportunities they provide, and the unresolved questions to consider when thinking about their role in the changing health and care landscape.


From July 2022, all health and care organisations in England will be required to work together as integrated care systems (ICSs). Provider collaboratives, along with place-based partnership, will be ‘key components’ of ICSs.  By working effectively at scale, provider collaboratives are set to provide opportunities to tackle unwarranted variation, making improvements and delivering the best care outcomes for patients and communities.


All NHS trusts providing acute and mental health services will be expected to be part of at least one provider collaborative. These may take different forms and will vary in their scale and scope: some will be ‘vertical’ collaboratives involving primary, community, local acute, mental health and social care providers coming together to join up their services; others will be ‘horizontal’ collaboratives involving providers working together across a wide geography with other similar organisations to transform services and/or improve quality and efficiency. Regardless of the structure they wish to partake in, all NHS providers will need to join a provider collaborative, and individual providers may be involved in more than one.


Whilst it is evident that provider collaboratives are set to become a core component of emerging plans in the NHS’ future, the introduction of these new structures has left some yet-to-be-resolved questions. These include:


  • How provider collaboratives will define what they will achieve
  • How they will balance permissiveness and the pace at which they need to be established
  • How the provider collaborative will work across:
    • Multiple ICSs and footprints
    • Capacity and capability
    • Culture, with the shift from competition to collaboration.


Against the backdrop of significant structural changes within the health care system, provider collaboratives offer potentially pivotal opportunities, should they be utilised to the full effect. As the implementation date for ICSs nears, it is crucial that these questions are answered to ensure that the delivery and impact of the provider collaboratives is both efficient and effective.

Cost Saving Solutions to Global Energy Market Shocks

In what has been dubbed the ‘perfect storm’ for energy markets worldwide, the combined impacts of limited supply, extreme weather conditions, the Covid-19 pandemic, and the Russian invasion of the Ukraine have significantly affected global energy supply and have resulted in record prices for gas, electricity, and coal. Indeed, experts have predicted that gas prices could remain at twice their usual level until 2025, demonstrating the longevity of this crisis.

As such, organisations across a range of sectors are facing increased costs for utilities.

Given the scale and projected endurance of this crisis, the case for investing in energy efficiency has never been stronger and there is considerable potential within most public sector organisations to make large energy cost and carbon emission savings through the upgrade and refurbishment of outdated facilities. Organisations across all sectors are also seeking to become more environmentally aware in accordance with the national green agenda and are actively working toward enhancing their energy efficiency to minimise their negative environmental output. This is becoming all the more crucial as consumers become more eco-aware and make decisions based on the social value of organisations.

As the Government continues to pursue its ambition to achieve Net Zero by 2050, it is critical that organisations fully consider the environmental impact of their operations. By proactively introducing energy efficient measures, organisations will be able to reduce their risk of exposure to any emerging energy standards from the Government, developing their status as an environmental leader whilst simultaneously reducing costs through such efficiency gains.

Moreover, as the Government urges UK public sector organisations to review their supplier contracts, it is imperative that organisations have a firm understanding of, and trust in, their utilities providers.

Offering a one stop shop for all of an organisation’s utilities needs, the HealthTrust Europe Utilities Framework provides a range of services across two distinct Lots and presents organisations with a compliant route to market for utilities solutions. Beyond this, HealthTrust Europe empowers organisations to make decisions that fit their unique energy needs and have a committed customer care team on-hand to support organisations throughout the contract process.

As with all HealthTrust Europe Frameworks, the Utilities offering can be tailored around the customer’s unique requirements and budget to provide better control of their spending. The Framework provides customers with the two-fold benefit of enhancing their environmental credibility through carbon-saving technology and offering the possibility of reducing and mitigating costs. Additional discounts are also offered by some suppliers within the Framework to qualifying participating authorities, further supporting organisations to reduce their expenses.

In using this Framework, organisations are able to improve their green credentials and reputations as environmental leaders, and are provided with cost-saving solutions that enable them to enjoy stability in the face of ongoing shocks to the energy market. In turn, HealthTrust Europe’s Utilities Framework can enable you to position your company as a socially valuable entity, and free up time and resource to allow you to prioritise alternative business objectives, all of which ultimately contributes to long-term prosperity.

HealthTrust Europe selects local Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity as its 2022 charity

HealthTrust Europe is pleased to announce that the local Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity has been selected as the company’s 2022 chosen charity.

Each year, HealthTrust Europe selects a different UK-based charity to fundraise for. The company organises regular fundraising events for staff to take part in, in an effort to raise as much money as possible for the chosen charity before the year ends.

This year, the staff at HealthTrust Europe have voted to support Birmingham Children’s Hospital (BCH), a specialist children’s hospital providing a range of services including major trauma care, paediatric intensive care, cardiac, renal, hepatic, orthopaedic surgeries, and mental health services.

HealthTrust Europe is a Birmingham-based company and the charity is one that is close to the hearts of all of our staff – many of whom have been treated at the Hospital themselves, or know someone close to them that has.

Speaking of her time at BCH as a child, Marketing Manager Leigh Draper said:

“I spent a lot of time at Birmingham Children’s Hospital when I was little, as I suffered with childhood asthma. I always remember my time at the hospital fondly, particularly the kindness and compassion of the staff.

The hospital regularly organised events and visits for the children, including Santa visits and my personal favourite – a visit from the Swedish Church Choir, which saw the choir members dressed up as royalty. I still have the newspaper clipping from that special visit!

I am so pleased we will be raising money for this exceptional cause and giving back directly to our community healthcare service.”

BCH’s ethos is that ‘there is always more we can do for our sick kids’, and their mission is therefore to raise as much money as possible to make a real difference to the children who use the hospital services. Visiting the hospital as a child can sometimes be a daunting prospect, but BCH do everything they can to offer children the best experience possible during their stay.

BCH relies on the kindness, generosity and hard work of their ‘Charity Champions’ to raise vital funds for the hospital. HealthTrust Europe are both proud and excited to join the impressive fundraisers already supporting BCH.

Dale Robinson, HealthTrust Europe’s Chief Operating Officer said:

“HealthTrust Europe staff have unanimously selected Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity as our 2022 charity. BCH do incredible work to support and improve the lives of local children, and it is a cause that means so much to our staff.   

Our company is and continues to be committed to the care and improvement of human life, and we are so pleased to be able to bring this passion into our fundraising efforts for BCH. All of our employees are excited to see how much we can raise before the year is up, and we hope that our fundraising can make a real difference to these children.”

HealthTrust Europe will be organising and taking part in fundraising activities throughout the year. The final amount raised will be announced in early 2023.

Celebrating International Women’s Day with HealthTrust Europe

Across the globe, International Women’s Day (IWD) is celebrated every year on the 8th of March. Since it’s formal recognition by the United Nations (UN) in 1975, IWD has brought with it the welcome opportunity to highlight the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women everywhere, and signal how much more is yet to be done.

On this day, HealthTrust Europe will join the rest of the world in raising awareness of women’s equality, celebrating the achievements of all women, campaigning for accelerated gender parity, and fundraising for female-focused charities. The campaign’s theme this year is how we can strive for a future of gender equality within a diverse, equitable and inclusive world and collectively #BreakTheBias. A primary ambition within this is to understand how we can support a sustainable tomorrow through an increase in women’s leadership, particularly throughout the enduring climate crisis.

HealthTrust Europe is taking the time to understand where our structures already succeed in overcoming barriers within society and the healthcare industry and recognise where we can focus our future efforts to deliver this mission with long-lasting effect.

Although women account for a large proportion of the healthcare workforce, data has revealed that women make up 15.3% of CEOs in health systems and an estimated 20-50% of executive leadership positions. These statistics indicate that there is a significant chasm between women entering the industry compared to their progression within it; this is something that must be addressed.

HealthTrust Europe actively works to support an inclusive and diverse work culture where women’s careers thrive, and their achievements are celebrated. Our commitment to gender equality is demonstrated throughout all levels of our organisation with strong female leaders providing coaching, guidance and leading high performing teams. Our Executive Team is 50% female.

It is precisely this representation and diversity in leadership that enables HealthTrust Europe to boast such a breadth of perspective and experience, ensuring that we continue to lead the way on gender equality and diversity in leadership.

Please see below a summary of further statistics, outlining HealthTrust Europe’s unwavering commitment to supporting women in the workplace:

  • 54% of the HealthTrust Europe workforce consists of female employees.
  • 42% of the women currently employed by HealthTrust Europe have progressed to more senior roles since joining the organisation.

As HealthTrust Europe continues to grow, our workforce continues to evolve, and the above figures are set to adapt accordingly to ensure that HealthTrust Europe continues to champion equality within the industry and lead by example.

Nanette Grant, Vice President for Sourcing, said:

“I am extremely proud to be part of the HealthTrust Europe team. As a leader we actively support a bright, equal, safe and rewarding future for women in the healthcare profession.

“Our talented, diverse workforce is driven and provides us with a perspective based on  empathy, understanding and innovation. We are all dedicated to the professional development of all our colleagues and we all value each other’s unique outlooks and capabilities.”

HealthTrust Europe is committed to recruiting, retaining, developing, and promoting talented individuals and supporting diversity and inclusion within our workforce. We are always looking for talented individuals to join our team and help us to improve healthcare in the communities we serve.
