LPP strapline

Technology & Consultancy

The Technology and Consultancy team works to improve the procurement and commissioning of technology, to support members with bespoke and one-off projects, and to represent members and make sure their requirements are considered at a national level. The team's remit is increasingly one of transformational change and driving aggregation.

Technology is at the centre of the evolution of the NHS as it continues to drive for operational efficiency combined with excellent patient care. The investment and procurement decisions to be made will be important, as will the underpinning contract and vendor management. Ad-hoc technology consultancy is likely to increase as the role of technology in the delivery of patient care changes significantly, not least to help the NHS meet the challenge to go digital by 2020. 

In addition to our workstream activities supporting the overall membership workplan for each year, NHS bodies are looking to LPP for additional services which add value to their procurements. These include undertaking complex, high profile procurements and consultancy assignments, often focussed on identifying and delivering business change in procurement leading to improvements in efficiency and reductions in third party expenditure.
