Interested in joining our GPO?

More and more healthcare providers are choosing to join our group purchasing organisation (GPO) and unlock the benefits of being part of an aligned membership. Working in partnership with HealthTrust Europe and our supplier community, our members are able to realise unparalleled value, which we define as quality, safety, service and price – with immediate and sustainable financial value.

GPO members receive support from our in-house data and analytics team – helping you manage your contracts effectively. This includes personalised catalogues and reports. Already a member? Access your personalised catalogues and reports here.

Access the benefits of our group purchasing organisation

Members have no-cost access to our growing GPO contract portfolio which offer double-digit savings opportunities. We provide a fast track to value due to the simplicity of our contracting philosophy: one price for all, and fixed pricing for the term of the contract.

Using a proven model from our parent company, our GPO contracts deliver unparalleled value, which we define as quality, safety, service and price – with immediate and sustainable financial value available exclusively for our members.

Instead of focusing on individual gain, our aligned members are fully committed and work together to deliver greater results for the good of the group. This is fundamental to creating ultimate purchasing power and best value contracts.

Our members share our sourcing strategy which is focused on standardisation and category expansion. GPO members actively participate in advisory boards which employ a rigorous product vetting and approval process that deliver provider-led contracts.

Our clinically integrated contracting process aligns clinical requirements, acceptability and outcomes to procurement processes – leading to greater product adoption and compliance.

Clinical representatives from our members serve on the Clinical Advisory Board and employ an evidence-based approach in defining clinical specifications. This ensures high quality, safety and service across the GPO portfolio and a platform for their voice to be heard.

GPO members are supported by a dedicated Account Director to drive results for your organisation – helping you to reduce costs, improve quality, and promote standardisation and utilisation.

Account Directors serve as a primary point of contact and are responsible for optimising the value members realise through our contract portfolio. They work alongside members to identify opportunities for GPO participation, contract conversion, standardisation and spend maximisation.

How to meet the challenges of migrating to a new operating system

According to the 2017/18 Data Security and Protection Requirements, NHS providers must identify unsupported systems and have a plan in place by April 2018 to remove, replace or actively mitigate or manage the risks associated with unsupported systems.
