HSJ Value Award Nomination 2017 for New National Ambulance Uniform Project
16 January 2017

A major national project which has created the first ever standardised uniform for use by UK Ambulance Trusts and is set save the NHS around £3.4 million has been shortlisted for an HSJ Value in Healthcare Award 2017.

It is a finalist in the Improving Value Through Innovative Financial Management or Procurement Category.

The procurement project, which was delivered by the NHS Commercial Alliance and the National Ambulance Procurement Group, will save Ambulance Trusts the cost of more than an entire year’s expenditure on uniform items (equivalent to around 165,000 garments per annum) over just four years - the equivalent of funding approximately 100 paramedics.

National Ambulance Procurement Delivery Manager at the NHS Commercial Alliance, James Richards, who managed the project said: “We are absolutely delighted to be shortlisted for this prestigious HSJ award, which is a testament to the hard work put in by all the Ambulance Trusts to deliver this framework, which will lead to multi-million pound savings as well as operating efficiencies.”

The HSJ Value in Healthcare Awards will be announced in May 2017 at a gala dinner at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
