The Challenge

With no group procurement function and local non-procurement stakeholders making buying decisions, executives recognised the opportunity to target immediate profitability improvement, consolidation and compliance.


In the first phase, the Procura team undertook a Spend Analysis and Opportunity Assessment across all the business units.  ProIntell was used to visualise and analyse all non-pay spend and provide the TTHG exec with full spend visibility.

The Opportunity Assessment identified more than half a million in savings across all categories of spend; directs (including clinical) and indirects.

The second phase was a six month programme of procurement cost reduction focused on 14 workstreams including; Medical implants and fittings, Healthcare Services, Consumables, Medical Equipment, Pharmacy, IT, Telecoms, Marketing, Soft FM, Workwear/Laundry.

The project over-delivered against the savings target, as well as putting in place key foundations for improved procurement for the future, and was selected as a Finalist for the MCA Commercial Excellence Award.
