Department of Health and Social Care registers company to manage £2.4bn in NHS savings

A subsidiary company registered in Companies House as Supply Chain Coordination Limited but known as the ‘intelligent client coordinator’ has been set up by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC). The company is to employ more than 200 people to manage the purchasing of common goods and equipment as part of the NHS’s new procurement model; it is hoped this will lead to £2.4bn in savings over five years.

HSJ believes that DHSC commercial director Jin Sahota is acting as the interim chief executive of the company but a substantive chief executive will be recruited once the new procurement model is established.

The new procurement model will replace the existing NHS Supply Chain contract held by DHL in October.
