What is the Procurement Development Programme?

 
The Health Care Supply Association (HCSA) Procurement Development Programme (PDP) has been developed for procurement professionals within the NHS. You may be new to procurement, involved on an ad-hoc basis alongside specialists, or part of strategic projects, but whatever your circumstances, the HCSA PDP will help you to get the best from your procurement and supplier management processes.
 
The PDP is focused on obtaining increased value from your procurement activities. You will also be able to use the most important concepts in procurement and apply these in your work to develop more effective business relationships.
 
Our courses have been designed and developed by experts with a strong background in public service procurement and supply chain management. You will learn from trainers who have supplier and contract management experience. You will leave the Programme feeling confident and better equipped to undertake negotiations, communicate with suppliers and achieve results that will benefit your organisation.
 
In  addition,  with  our  support, you  will  also  be  able  to  deal  with  more  complex and  business-critical procurement projects.
 
This is a 5-day course that introduces you to trainers and speakers who are key players within the NHS procurement world and it also offers an invaluable networking opportunity with colleagues and peers. This network will become an invaluable source of communication and idea-sharing for years to come.
