The NHS is facing its biggest financial squeeze in its history over the coming years. It is constantly looking to be more efficient and make savings, but what does procurement look like and how it could be improved?

Bandaging foot

HSJ, in association with NHS Supply Chain, wants to explore readers’ experiences of purchasing clinical supplies and how the process can be streamlined.

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

Do you feel empowered to get involved in decisions that may produce savings and improvements in patient care?

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 28 December.
