The Industry’s Only National Committed Model GPO
The foundation of the HealthTrust Europe model is a patient-focused mission, led by experienced clinical leaders and member advisory boards who conduct a rigorous product vetting and approval process.
Twenty years of partnering with healthcare providers to strengthen performance and clinical excellence
As the only national committed-model group purchasing organisation (GPO) in the UK, we take clinical and commercial requirements to market on behalf of our members and undertake procurement activities aimed at obtaining the highest quality products and services at the best price for healthcare providers.
Enabling groups of organisations to collaborate and agree a commitment of spend to a limited number of suppliers across a range of category areas is known to deliver significant benefits to all parties involved. Particularly when supported by Advisory Boards, led by your clinical and procurement experts as it aligns clinical requirements, acceptability and outcomes to procurement processes.
Whilst we develop our GPO contract portfolio, we continue to offer our Core contract portfolio of MedSurg categories.
A Clinically-Led Approach
Member led boards govern all contract decisions, ensuring alignment to the highest quality products at the industry’s best prices. HealthTrust Europe has established two types of customer representative board; namely the Clinical Advisory Board and the Procurement Partnership Board.
Clinical Advisory Board
The Clinical Advisory Board (Physicians, Consultants, Nurses, Pharmacists, Therapists and Technicians) employs an evidence based approach in defining clinical specifications ensuring high quality, safety and service across the GPO portfolio. HealthTrust Europe understands care delivery. That is why patients are the focus of every clinical decision made by the Clinical Advisory Board. Product selection supports the delivery of patient care in the communities we serve.
Procurement Partnership Board
The Procurement Partnership Board representative of procurement and supply chain experts works with HealthTrust Europe to set the business requirements for all GPO categories and provide the leverage required to negotiate the lowest costs.
