BBC report “A new central procurement list for NHS England aimed at ensuring hospitals get the best price for supplies could help save £500m, the government says. Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt said the “radical” move would ensure every penny of the health budget was spent wisely. A “procurement tsar” will produce the list – made up of prices negotiated and set between the NHS and suppliers. But Labour said the government’s overhaul of the NHS had wasted millions and these plans would not change that. The new central procurement list will mean that hundreds of everyday hospital supplies will be bought in bulk to help harness the “buying power” of the health service.”
