The newly launched contract covering Dorset, Somerset , Devon & Cornwall has been successfully implemented with most areas making good savings from the wider contract coverage. The PPSA standard ‘once only’ approach is saving the NHS both time and money in tendering and managing this high impact patient focussed contract which is now supplying to over 36,000 patients in the four counties. Price stability for the next 3 years gives Trusts firm control of their costs in this volatile energy based market.
