The health service is constantly looking to be more efficient and make savings. In this climate, what does procurement look like and who is making the important buying decisions?

Pound coin

HSJ, working with NHS Supply Chain, is trying to find out what happens across healthcare around the purchase of clinical supplies – and whether you feel empowered to get involved in decisions that may produce savings and improvements in patient care.

For each completed survey NHS Supply Chain will donate £1 to Alzheimer’s Research UK.

Who makes the decisions on buying clinical supplies at your organisation? Is it the healthcare professionals who will use what is purchased, or the finance and procurement departments?

We want to know what you think are the benefits of better procurement and which ones are most important.

It will only take 5-10 minutes to fill in our short survey. Your responses will be confidential.

The survey will be open until 29 August.
